Event Overview

Come on in!
Pick out some vintage wood type.
Make a poster.
Print like crazy!
Take away a few fun, handmade graphic prints.

This class is a great introduction to letterpress printing with wood type.

We'll focus on creating stylistic posters with quotes and phrases, that you can take home that night!
Students will learn how to set up wood type, hand-brayer ink, and print on a mid-century Sign Press.

Each student will print their own poster. We'll also work with transparent ink and overprinting techniques to make several collaborative posters.

This class is free form and fast paced, so get some ink on the page, and take home a few one-of-a-kind art prints!
