Join AIGA Pittsburgh and Lisa Krowinski, owner of Sapling Press, for a
beginner/intro to letterpress workshop in her studio and storefront in
Lawrenceville! Enjoy light refreshments while you learn about Lisa, her
shop and the history of letterpress. After that, prepare to get your

machinery. Please dress accordingly.
