Cylinder Core Certificate Program
The handfed cylinder proof press, also known as the Vandercook press, has a special place in both print history and in teaching book arts. Immediate and accessible, yet nuanced and specific, it is the press that introduced many of us to letterpress. The four class Cylinder Core Certificate Program allows students to move quickly through the press basics while also addressing relief printing in general. Students who finish the four core classes are qualified to rent press time as well as move on to more advanced classes and techniques.

Past Student Reviews:
“Thea did a great job building our autonomy and confidence by allowing us to have more creative freedom with colors chosen and activating more presses than previous classes. It was the first time I have ever cleaned a press by myself and that was oddly satisfying.”
“Thea is a fantastic instructor. She explains things clearly and she happily gives both technical and creative advice. She has the perfect mix of helping you when you need it but also letting you learn on your own from trial and error. She stayed later than 5:30 to make sure everyone finished. I can't wait to take Core 4 with her.”
“Thea loves what she does and it shows in her enthusiastic teaching style.”
