Print Your Own Letterpress Tarot Card

October 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

$70 – $75

Hands-on classes in the Book Arts Studio!

In this class, you’ll make your own letterpress tarot or oracle card, while learning how to use the platen press to make small prints. We will talk about typesetting basics, as well as divinatory symbolism, and I will help you design a simple card that you’ll print yourself. Everyone will end up with a mini oracle deck featuring each of the cards made in class!

Things to Note:
• Makers of all skill levels are welcome. This class is suitable for ages twelve+.
• All necessary tools and materials needed to participate are provided.
• Please read our ‘Plan Your Visit’ page to review our health & safety procedures.
Participants are required to sign a waiver upon arrival to class to participate in the Studio Workshop.
