Caleb cranks on the Vandercook

My 8-year-old son Caleb and I are taking the Intro to Letterpress class at Igloo Letterpress. Going into it, I wasn't sure if he would be up for a 3-hour class, so mom packed his back pack with snacks, comic books, and his sketch book. By the time class was over, he was begging for more. We had a great time. Caleb printed valentines cards with a porcupine on them. Seemed a little random to the rest of us--made total sense to him. We're both excited to go back next week. We'll be learning how to set type and print with photopolymer plates made from our own artwork.

Next week I will try to remember to bring my real camera instead of using my iphone.

More to come...
