Printing Poetry @ the Arm: July 12 & 19

I pinged this via the Member News feed the other day,* but in case you missed it there, here's the scoop from Kyle Schlesinger:
PRINTING POETRY: A Workshop for Poets and Visual Artists at The Arm Letterpress Studio

On July 12th and 19th, Dan Morris and I will be teaching a two-day letterpress workshop together at The Arm Letterpress Studio in Brooklyn, NY. You'll learn the basics of typography, composition and have the opportunity to print a broadside that features your own text and image on the Vandercook proof press. Come alone or with a collaborator. No previous experience necessary. All materials provided. More details available here. The Arm is a young, grassroots organization for poets, artists, and aspiring printers located near the G and L trains in Williamsburg.

Awesome, no?

Kyle also notes that "the Arm also has presses available for rent (lowest price in town) should you wish to come in for the day and do your own thing." They also offer one-on-one instruction if you're new to letterpress (or even if you're not--machines are different and usually have unique, shall we say, personalities.)

And peek at their Flickr stream for pics of the presses, the gallery, and past events.
