#2027 Intro to Letterpress, Saturday Session, March 3

$ 165.00

This class will present the fundamentals of letterpress printing. It is designed for those new to letterpress and for those who need a refresher course. The basics of hand typesetting with metal type will be taught. We will cover the essentials of good presswork including good inking and impression to insure your projects will come out beautiful and consistent. During the class, we’ll also discuss choices for paper and options for including illustrations (linoleum cuts, polymer plates, and more).

Each student will set type, design and print a broadside. Students are asked to bring a poem of 6-8 lines for their project.

This class could qualify students for membership in our Open Studio:Letterpress program. If you'd like to take this class before enrolling in the Open Studio, please email info@bookartsla.org so we can confirm the details.
