text + image = glory
five full days: August 19th-23rd, 10am-4pm

Letterpress is not just about text! For decades, artists have been using these presses to produce beautiful, image-based work. Come and learn art-making letterpress techniques! Together we will cover several of these processes on the Vandercook and Fag presses including linoleum carving and pressure printing. Over the course of five days, we will work to combine the images we produce with text printed from metal type.

Participants in this intensive course will leave with the skills to hand-set and print from metal type, print from linoleum blocks, and create pressure printing plates for more spontaneous imagery. After the completion of the course, students will be able to book in private sessions with the Ink Spot Press equipment. The combination of imagery and well-printed text is addictive. Come find out why so many artists choose letterpress as their medium. All materials provided. Suitable for all levels of experience.
