PRINT & LETTERPRESS SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Nicholas Silberg
Pressing Pixels

In this workshop students will learn how to make alternative matrices for letterpress printing using laser cutting/engraving and 3D printing. We’ll also use the 3D printer to make experimental letterpress tools and furniture and the laser cutter to make delicate cuts and perforations on finished prints. Students can choose to make a small edition of prints, a book, or a series of monoprints. We’ll cover software and tools for laser cutting and 3D printing as well as hand typesetting, ink mixing, Vandercook and platen press operation, paper choices, and basic bookbinding. All levels. Letterpress studio. 

Professor at Savannah State University (GA); other teaching: Ashantilly Press (GA), Atlanta Printmakers (GA), Barberville Settlement for the Creative Arts (FL); Penland Winter Residency Distinguished Fellowship, On::View Residency at Sulfur Studios (GA); exhibitions: Margaret Martin Gehman Gallery (VA); collections: Savannah College of Art and Design (GA).
