Great for families, friends, birthdays, & showers
Creating something together is one of the best ways to build community, learn a skill, and just have a good time. Our classes are great for girls' or guys' nights out, bachelorette parties, birthdays, showers, or family gatherings. Best for 4-60 participants, ages 8 and up.
We have picked a few of our most popular activities to choose from, but if you have an idea of something specific you would like to do, please let us know and we'll see what we can cook up together.
Choose Your Project
While projects require specific abilities, our studios are accessible to all. Please let us know about special needs when registering and we can help you choose an appropriate project for your group.
Perfect for the creative group - every participant will get to choose their own flat notecard design from our wood type, lead type, and vintage images. The design could consist of a few images, a word or two, or a few letters. These would be set up in our vintage 1942 Vandercook letterpress and the participant would get to print 10 copies of their flat notecards, and choose envelopes to coordinate.
4-11 people, 1.5-2 hours, $35 per person
12-30 people, 2-3 hours, $25 per person
30-60 people, 2-3 hours, $15 per person
There is nothing like making and using your very own journal. Each guest would get to choose from a variety of beautiful book cloths, decorative papers, and perfect bound text-blocks to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind hardback journal to take home that day.
4-11 people, 2 hours, $35 per person

Does your group have a favorite saying? Are you getting together for an annual event? Let us design an 8x10 poster for you, using our wood type and lead type, and let your guests each hand-ink and pull 4 prints of that design to take home. Some ideas would be "I Love Columbus," "Home is Where the Heart Is," "Go Bucks," etc.... We would then lead the group in a mini-bookbinding workshop where each participant would get to bind a small softcover journal with the cover and pages of their choice. ($25 per person, 1-2 hours)
4-11 people, 1-2 hours, $25 per person

Show your state love by printing our Love Ohio card on our 1943 Vandercook proof presses using a magnesium plate designed here at Igloo. Each participant will get to choose from a variety of papers, pull 10 prints of this adorable card, then choose from a rainbow of envelopes to match.
Learn a classic bookbinding stitch and choose from a wide variety of book covers, pages, and thread to make each book your very own. Each participant will get to create 3 custom books to take home.
Show your appreciation by printing these fun thank-you notes. We will set up our antique wood type on our 1943 Vandercook proof press, and have each student print 10 copies of these bold and friendly cards. Then head to the rainbow envelope wall to choose matching envelopes for mailing.
