PRINT & LETTERPRESS SUMMER SESSION 7
AUGUST 13–18, 2023
Ink, Paper, Wood
Using wood type and veneer, this workshop will develop a selection of letters, shapes, and images to create abstract compositions, modular designs, and/or text and image combinations. Wood type will be used for text but also to explore its potential to create patterns and shapes. We’ll cut our own designs in wood veneer, by hand and with the laser cutter, to be used modularly or in conjunction with wood type. The group will establish a set of individual and shared matrices that can be used in infinite combinations for broadsides and small prints. Instruction will include the fundamentals of letterpress printing. All levels. Letterpress studio.
