Letterpress Heaven Workshop, Church of Type, Santa Monica CA
December 7 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
The Type Directors Club is happy to partner with Kevin Bradley and Church of Type to offer a one-day workshop in Santa Monica, California. Enter Kevin’s temple of typography on Thursday, December 7, and you will have access to a vast collection of wood and metal type, illustrations and woodcuts, and presses. Leave your computer behind and get your hands dirty with type, ink, and paper in an extended hands-on experience that will refresh and inspire you. Make what you want and leave with one print or fifty. Ink and paper are also provided, but you may bring your own paper if you have something special to try.
Kevin Bradley is one of America’s most prolific letterpress printmakers. From his early days at Hatch Show Print in Nashville to his 15-year run as the founder of Yee Haw Industries in Knoxville, Tennessee, his work has been instrumental in redefining the idea of contemporary letterpress. Kevin has covered the globe with a range of ephemera and custom typographic fine art prints. The Church of Type in Los Angeles, California represents his newest venture. In 2013 he moved 30 tons of letterpress equipment across the country to bring his own vision and style to the epicenter of American culture.
