- Sunday, September 26 • 10am-4pm
- Sunday, October 3 • 10am-4pm
In two sessions, we’ll introduce students to the Book Arts League Print Shop and cover some letterpress basics. In Session 1 we’ll begin by making simple collage compositions with wood and metal type, ornaments and engravings available in the shop, and print them on the Vandercook SP-15 press. In Session 2 we’ll focus on the process of typesetting with metal type and be introduced to more traditional presswork like lockup and registration.
Participants will each print 20 copies of a small keepsake. (Students attending both classes will print using both techniques—collage and typesetting--on their cards.)
6 students per class max.
