Best DIY Letterpress San Francisco 2011 - Oh Happy Day
Oh Happy Day's one-day beginner art classes are offered in bookbinding, screenprinting, and calligraphy, but it's the beginners' letterpress class at $135 that gets our vote. Jordan Ferney, who runs the class at the aptly named Ferney Art Studio, teaches students how to work with photopolymer plates and proof presses to imprint designs they've created or chosen onto white cotton paper. Students leave with a new understanding about the art of letterpress alongside self-made business cards. This way they can show off their profession and their newfound art skills at the same time. With only eight spots, the class fills up fast, so be quick to sign up or e-mail Ferney for a place on the waiting list.
