My friend Tom and I are both currently interning at Salt and Cedar letterpress, and today we helped prep for the Valentine workshop event, Prove Your Love. After fresh cups of Great Lakes coffee, both he and I got to work by setting up a variety of paper goods for the class.
To start the morning off, Megan O'Connell lead the group by explaining the letterpress and movable type printing process via hands-on demonstration. Each couple then had the opportunity to create their own customized valentine notes. Everyone was encouraged to take sporadic breaks to indulge in fresh sliced baguettes spread with a triple-cream brie, and topped with choice of raspberry jam, raw honey, salami and/or a balsamic vinegar. The students were really wonderful, and great times were had!
