Bremelo Press is a space where curiosity leads to adventure, process to discovery, and where community engages, shares and supports those seeking to make something new in the world.

Result:

Bring your own short poem or we can discover one together as a conversation is a portal to a poem.

"A hero doesn't use a weapon. A hero uses her heart." - Lynda Sherman

Instructor Bio:
With over 20 years of letterpress experience, your instructor is Lynda Sherman. Lynda brings her life as an artist, creative business owner and constant collaborator to share with you. Her letterpress posters are in the permanent collection of The Center for the Study of Political Graphics and she has taught at Penland School of Crafts (it's been called the Harvard of Craft Schools) as well as other national workshops.

"Lynda Sherman is the kind of collaborator you dream of. She will take your vision and turn it into something greater than you imagined. I find myself time and time again in her shop working on anything from an artist edition to a business card and recommend her for anyone who is looking to create something in type that resonates with their vision and voice." - Sierra Stinson

"Working with Lynda Sherman is DREAMY. We sit, we sip tea, we talk about life and living and being and then she draws with pencil on blank white paper and we follow the clues and then BINGO that blank page is filled with words and creativity and the idea is born and nurtured. Its a glorious experience which creates beautiful design and messaging individual to each client and each sitting. Dreamy I tell ya! Go and sit and sip and see what is born." - Peggy Frasse

"I have been a student of Lynda’s for several years, and have observed her with many other students. Lynda is a master teacher. She provides students with a rock solid understanding of the practical and physical elements of letterpress printing. At the same time, she encourages each student to develop their own artistic expression and guides each one in a kind and supportive way. Learning from Lynda, in her magical studio, has been a wonderful experience that I highly recommend." - Jean Carter

"Lynda has a way of coaxing words from her students as expertly as she pulls letters from her drawers of type. With her guidance, I shaped them from written to printed word, learning about letterpress (and myself) in the process. Thank you for starting me on this new journey!" - Lori Vonderhorst

"Lynda is an artist and craftswoman of the highest caliber. She skillfully incorporates her great sense of design to create pieces that truly reflect the aspirations and the personalities of her clients. Her zen-like approach to her craft and attention to detail truly sets her apart. She’s such a pleasure to work with. I give nothing but my highest recommendation for Lynda and can’t wait to work with her again on future projects." - John Lok
