Saturday April 8 10-2 ?Ì_at Big Wheel Press Cottage Street Studios Building 15 Easthampton MA

In this 4 hour hands-on workshop we will create an edition of one sheet fold up books using hand set and cast type. Participants are asked to bring in a line from their favorite piece of writing. We will learn how to cast type using a Ludlow and work collaboratively to create a poem using everyone's lines. We will learn how to use a mockup book to set the type on the press for the correct imposition. The workshop will end with learning the binding structure and creating the editions. Participants will each go home with part of the edition.

Taught by Bill Muller of Big Wheel Press ?Ì_Holly Wren Spaulding of Poetry Forge & Lisa Hersey of Antler Editions.
