This sounds fun; I hear there are still some open spots:

Study Poetry, Letterpress Printing and Binding with J.W. Marshall and Jules Remedios Faye (starts April 4, and meet Mondays from 6:30 to 9:30 pm; $495.)
Join beloved local poet J.W. (John) Marshall of Open Books and legendary letterpress printer Jules Remedios Faye for an inspirational writing, printing, and book binding class in the School of Visual Concepts’ letterpress studio. John will lead students through the creative writing process, focusing on use of the image in short poetry or prose pieces appropriately sized for in-class letter press printing. Jules will instruct students in the magic of printing and hand-binding. The end result will be a collaborative limited-edition hand-printed, hand-bound book which includes a piece by each student.

Here’s what John has to say about the class: “There is a wonderful bit of education to be had when a person type-sets a poem they've written. That tactile relationship to the chosen word really provides an uncommon perspective. Plus I've taken a couple of printing classes from Jules and promise that she is an amazing teacher, printer, and person.” Registration info
