learn to letterpress

I ran across a cute little paper goods booth at the Custer Street Fair last weekend and apparently they offer classes on screen printing, block printing, book binding and letterpress!  I have always wanted to learn how to letterpress, but not sure if I could commit to a 10 week course!!  She told me that you use authentic equipment and that's the reason for the class length - people used to apprentice for years to learn the craft.  What's really good is that they offer studio time, so after you complete the course you can rent time to come in and create your own goods.  Hmmm..... It sounds like so much fun!!!  I might think about doing it in the fall, you know when time spent inside is a good thing!
