This workshop introduces the art and craft of letterpress printing of experimental, purpose-driven broadsides and posters. Using handset wood and metal type, along with other relief printing elements, artists will design and hand-print broadside/poster projects in small editions on the Vandercook press. The workshop will consist of technical demonstrations on setting type, inking and multiple color layer letterpress printing, and various simple image-printing processes. Employing non-toxic techniques and minimal chemical cleanup, this class is ideal for dipping your toes into Letterpress printing! Beginners welcome and encouraged!
