Print & Letterpress Fall One-Week Session II
October 20-26, 2019
Breaking the Algorithm
This workshop will provide skills for rejecting perfectionism and delving into process. Using Penland’s collection of wood and metal type, we’ll explore and experiment with text using traditional print shop practices. We’ll hand compose type on the stick and the press bed, working with flip turn and overprinting techniques. We’ll have daily demonstrations and lively discussions about collaboration, creative decision making, and analog content dissemination. Computer free. All levels. Code F02L
