    Hi there,

    I am very interested in learning about the art of letterpress printing and am having a hard time finding a class/seminar in the Ottawa area. I know that the Canadian Bookbinders sometimes offer classes but the next ones are on weekdays and unfortunately my current work schedule doesn’t allow me to go. I am interested in learning how you got started in letterpress and whether you know of any nearby classes or seminars?

    Appreciate any help you may be able to offer.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Bonnie,

      Apologies for what must be an amazing amount of time passing before responding. I’ve been doing some maintenance work on the blog and found your message.

      There are 12 presses at work in the Ottawa area, and they are all part of the Ottawa Press Gang. If you’re interested in joining, just send me your email via our website or to studio@greyweathers.com

      All the best to you!
