Participants will come away from this workshop with crisp, hand-printed greeting cards, posters or other creative text-based artworks. Suitable for all levels, no prior experience is needed.

About the Print Instructor: Phoebe Todd-Parrish (she/her) is a book artist and printmaker from Toronto. She graduated from the Masters of Fine Arts program at the University of Alberta with a specialization in Printmaking in 2018. Much of Phoebe’s creative work explores the relationship between text and image.

Letterpress is ideally suited to printing relief processes and is strongly associated with the book arts, which attracted her during her postgraduate degree. In addition to her academic training, much of Phoebe’s letterpress knowledge has been gleaned through apprenticing and befriending other letterpress printers. As such, she is keen to continue spreading her passion and expertise in the medium to others. Phoebe prints stationery, posters, and limited edition prints from her studio in the Queen West neighbourhood, and is also a sessional instructor in Print Media at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario where she teaches first and second-year courses.
