Printing Poetry: Advanced Letterpress Practice

Saturday, June 16 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday, June 23, 12 to 4 p.m.Advance your letterpress printing skills and practice typesetting and design for letterpress printing! In this workshop, you will design and letterpress print your own broadside, using handset type and the Vandercook printing press. We will discuss different papers for printing, and investigate typographic and graphic design for letterpress printing. A broadside is a finely designed, typographically-driven, beautifully letterpress printed artwork, honoring a well-loved poem or quote. We will also discuss simple image making techniques to accompany your typographic design. Each participant will create their own broadside, in an edition of 20 to 25. All supplies included in the cost of the workshop.
