Craftivism: Advocacy and Letterpress Workshop

March 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Enjoy this unique opportunity to learn letterpress and refine your advocacy techniques at Igloo Letterpress in historic downtown Worthington! This 2-hour advocacy workshop will begin with a letterpress workshop, where you will have the opportunity to create preservation-themed postcards. You will love learning this traditional printing technique that has been used since the 1400s (aka hundreds of years)!

After printing your postcards, we will learn advocacy techniques from Sarah Marsom, heritage resource consultant and recipient of the 2018 National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Aspire Award. Marsom will delve into strategies to be a champion for historic preservation at both a local and statewide level. Plus you’ll learn what top level historic preservationists are advocating for currently statewide and how you can help. We will conclude the workshop with all participants writing a postcard to a city official or state legislator to promote a historic preservation effort they are passionate about. Postage will be provided.

Reserve your spot through Eventbrite.
