Margot Ecke owns and operate Smokey Road Press, a letterpress and bookbinding company based in Athens. She is a former college professor and has taught extensively at Arrowmont, Penland, at Atlanta Printmakers Studio.
This three hour class will introduce students to the art of letterpress printing. Using a sign press, brayers and letterpress ink, each student will design and create their own letterpress printed stationery, perfect for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts or thank you notes to Santa. Students will leave with a set of 30 letterpress printed cards and envelopes.
Join us for our first Adult Gift Making series! We have asked some of our favorite local artists to join us in celebrating the season!
Our kid gift making series has always been a favorite here at the shop so we decided to expand this series and give the adults some fun too!
Each class is from 6:30-9:30
Feel free to bring a snack or adult beverage.
