      Letterpress I

      10 weeks
      Sundays,  January 9 – March 13
      2PM - 5PM

      $385 (plus $25 materials fee)

      In Letterpress I you will begin to explore all that lettepress has to offer.  We will cover the basics needed to work with both type and photopolymer, and will leave you with a solid foundation in letterpress printing.  Letterpress I does work primarily with photopolymer - a material and process that allows you to take your computer designed image, and create letterpress magic.  You will participate in a group project, but will also likely have time for work of your own.

      Limit 6 participants.

      In this class students will be introduced to screen printing techniques on fabric or paper.  In the course you will learn how to apply images to screens using a variety of methods, including stencils, photo emulsion, and hand drawing.  You will also learn how to mix inks, and practice printing to develop imagery, as well as color and pattern relationships.  Instruction will culminate in the accomplishment of a chosen project, which can range from t-shirts, lengths of fabric for use in fashion or accessories, fabric to make a variety of household products such as cushions and curtains, or paper projects such as posters or greeting cards.  No previous printing experience is necessary.
