Print & Letterpress Summer Session 2
June 6-17, 2021
Power of the Press: Concept, Collaboration, and Community
Leveraging the power of the printed word, we’ll explore the community-building potential of letterpress printing. This workshop will focus on concept and content as we work on a variety of projects with varying levels of collaboration and sharing. We’ll cover traditional letterpress processes with a focus on wood type. We’ll also learn some image-making and basic bookbinding techniques in support of larger collaborative projects. Students will leave with a series of editioned prints, a copy of our collaborative book, and the experience of working within a community of printers and makers. All levels. Letterpress studio.
