Print & Letterpress Summer Session 3
June 19–July 1
Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring
All-You-Can-Eat Letterpress Smorgasbord
In this feast of a workshop, students will consume the basics of typographic composition and digest the intricacies of digital file prep for found or original illustrations. We’ll stir together a rich mix of techniques as we combine photopolymer images with curved, angled, and circular daredevil typesetting. The combination of innovative analog and digital media will make for a full plate spiced with linoleum carving and hand coloring. Students will concoct an editioned print exchange and leave with recipes for a sumptuous printer’s banquet. All levels. Letterpress studio.
