BEVERLY, W.Va. (AP) — Residents can learn how to make and print Christmas cards the old-fashioned way at an event next month in Randolph County.

An introductory workshop on printmaking will be held Nov. 17 at the Beverly Heritage Center. It will be taught by Karl Mulac, the proprietor of a working 19th century printshop called The Randolph Enterprise Project.

Participants will learn some of the methods used to create 19th-century illustrations. Visitors can bring a simple sketch or work from clip art to create their own linoleum block for printing. At the end of the workshop, they'll take home their block and printed cards.

Mulac has been collecting and restoring 19th-century printing equipment for nearly 20 years.
