Fall Short Print and Letterpress

LETTERPRESS SHORT SESSION
September 25 – 30, 2022
(Four studio days)
Michelle Dreher
Colorful Layers and Letterpress

The practice of block printing began over 2000 years ago with techniques that have evolved over time. This workshop will focus on creating hand-carved linocut blocks and printing with the precision of letterpress equipment. Explore reductive processes and multi-block experimentations and see your images come to life. We’ll cover the basics of letterpress printing on a Vandercook, and as we progress there will be opportunities to learn and incorporate typesetting, photopolymer plates, and laser engraving to expand beyond traditional carved relief prints. All levels. Letterpress studio.
