Workshops

Join us at the museum to get a hands-on experience!

Affordable letterpress and bookmaking workshops are offered throughout the year for all skill levels - from beginners to experienced. You can also view this information on our calendar.

Another option is to arrange a private full-day workshop for 6-10 people. Many colleges, universities, design agencies and individual groups have done this. Please contact the museum to check dates and get more information at info@woodtype.org or call 920.794.6272.
