Kelsey Model X, rubber based inks and cotton paper.

Yes. Beginner letterpress. A one-morning workshop where students learn how to ink, operate, print and clean a table top platen press. One-on-one.

Research is the most important part. I must have read and researched for over a year before deciding to take the leap and purchase my first press.
