      Letterpress WOW: Printing in the Wonderful World of Type
      With April Sheridan

      April 19 & 20 (Please note - date change)
      Saturday and Sunday 10:00 � 4:00
      Cost $180

      Come celebrate spring as you learn basic letterpress skills � play
      with furniture, type sticks, reglet and lock-up bars. Learn new
      meanings for deadlines and registration. April has lots of fun facts
      about the history of wood type, and can help you explore how
      letterforms can be used as images. The class will collaborate to make
      a unique group project. Each participant will have a copy to take
      away at the end of the day on Sunday.

      Class size is limited to 6 participants.

      Computer Design for Polymer
      With Dana Bowers

      April 22, 29, May 6, 13, 27, & June 3
      Tuesdays 6:00 pm � 9:00 pm
      Cost $270

      This class is designed for letterpress printers who want to learn how
      to best utilize computer design software for letterpress printing.
      Students will design and systematically learn how to layout several
      design elements, including scanning, computer illustration, and type.
      The final product will be to prepare a file to output as film.

      Each class will be 3 hours. The first half of the class will be
      lecture, and the second half will be hands-on application of the
      techniques for personal projects.

      Students should have their own computers with Adobe Illustrator. We
      have a few on site, but encourage bringing your own laptop.

      Class size is limited to 8 participants.

      Bookmaking & Creative Writing for Teachers
      With Leah Mayers

      May 24th
      Saturday 10 � 4
      Cost $108 (includes materials fee)

      This class is for teachers who want their students to love books �
      both inside and out. Leah works with art teachers who want to
      incorporate writing into their curriculum, and/or elementary and
      secondary teachers who want to enhance the teaching of literacy
      through making books and writing poetry. Teachers will walk away with
      samples of multiple structures that will be easy to incorporate into
      regular classrooms as well as art rooms. Leah�s own work as a teacher
      helps her structure projects that work within the constraints of a
      real world classroom.

      Here�s a chance to explore your own creativity rather than grading
      someone else�s.
