Spring Short Session Printmaking

Printmaking and Letterpress – Spring Short Session
April 30 – May 5, 2023 (4 studio days)
Martin Mazorra
Woodcut and Letterpress Poster Workshop

This workshop will use the direct and immediate qualities of woodcut images combined with letterpress text as the operative elements behind graphic statements. It will provide hands-on experience in woodcut and in the principles and process of hand-composition and letterpress printing. We’ll cover Vandercook press operation, multiple pass registration, and general printing practices as we make beautiful woodcut posters. All levels. Letterpress studio.
