In an effort to spread the gospel of letterpress printing with metal type, I have hosted occasional workshops at Starshaped and beyond. I’ve lectured and taught at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, Wells College Book Arts Center, and Penland School of Crafts, and conducted workshops at the International Printing Museum, Signal Return, School of Visual Concepts, Pacific Lutheran University, the University of Arizona, Western New York Book Arts Center and Columbia College Book & Paper Arts Center. Starshaped hosted and programmed the 2015 Amalgamated Printers' Association Wayzgoose in Chicago and has been recognized in many books, magazines and on blogs. My print work has won numerous awards and has repeatedly been featured in How and uppercase magazine.

Workshops range from single-day projects to full week intensives, with most classes having no more than 7 students. Lectures have ranged from the history and use of metal type and its contemporary practices, to running a modern business in letterpress and connecting with your community through art practice. Please contact me if you’d like to have me teach and/or talk with your group or institution.

We love to host workshops but don't currently have any planned. That said, Chicago has a lot of options for classes! Please check out our friends at Spudnik Press, Lill Street and Chicago Printmakers Collaborative.
