Letter-into-Press Workshop | February 3-4, 2018

150.00

Letter-into-Press, type design & polymer plate

co-taught by Lorena Howard-Sheridan and Meredith Miller

$150.00 plus material fee of $20

In this hands-on, !!Two day!! workshop, each participant will:

  • Craft their letterforms by hand, gathering inspiration from typeface-design notions, classic typography and modular systems.
  • Turn the final letter forms into polymer plates through a simple photographic method.
  • Print the polymer plate reproductions on a Vandercook letterpress.
  • You will leave with a letterpress printed broadside of the group's letterforms, along with an edition of your personal designs.

Our process will be learned, yet exploratory: there will be room for experimentation while throwing light into the practice of letterpress printing production. You will experience the close relationship between medium and the resulting artifact.

10am-3pm & 10-3pm (open studio until 6pm each day)
