PRINT & LETTERPRESS SUMMER SESSION 6
JULY 30–AUGUST 11, 2023
With an emphasis on play, experimentation, and embracing the unexpected, we’ll dive into Penland’s collection of wood and metal type to create one-of-a-kind typographic prints and collages. Students will start by learning the basics of letterpress printing and then expand on traditional methods with repetition, masking, overprinting, and cutting and pasting to explore the unique visual potential of typographic forms. We’ll set type in the composing stick, in an angle chase, and using daredevil furniture. All levels. Letterpress studio.
