Letterpress Lite

June 23, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

$95.00 – $135.00

Ever feel like breaking away from traditional approaches to printmaking? Perhaps you have a lot to “say” and want to incorporate wording in your work but are not exactly sure how to go about it. This is your chance to learn all there is to know about letterpress printing through alternative printmaking methods. In this 2-day workshop you will be taught typographical terminology and typesetting techniques through fun and engaging projects. Our theme will be Time and Place. We will be using printmaking and letterpress as the main form of communication, but we will be exploring forms of embellishments, methods of folding and bindery as ways to finish and display the pieces as well.

Here you will be given the freedom to question the idea of what a print is and explore various materials and mixed media to develop your own type language. This workshop is a collaborative and supportive space open to everyone. No experience necessary.

“I enjoy blurring the lines between massed produced art and one-of-a-kind fine art. I believe true collaboration and art making takes place in the spaces where the unknown is the main subject or challenge. My students get the guided tour from someone who has been there on countless occasions but with the energy of someone discovering the place for the first time.” —Evelyn Davis-Walker
