Registration is now open for a leisure but intensive exploration of
the art & craft of Letterpress Printing. Beginners and experienced
printers welcome. Spread over 12 weeks, this summer and fall, you will
have time to practice all aspects of the craft. This class will be
using handset metal and wood type and photo polymer plates. Also
Linocut and traditional letterpress cuts, 100+ cases of type and the
opportunity to print on an 8" x 10" table top and a 10" x 15" floor
model platen and a 20" x 36" flatbed cylinder press. In addition to
class projects, students are encouraged to explore personal projects.
