This hands-on workshop will combine the techniques of pressure printing and overprinting with wood type to create beautifully layered prints.
For the first part of class we will create our backgrounds by exploring techniques of pressure printing. We’ll use a variety of items, such as collaged cut outs or other flat materials—such as leaves, lace and string—to create impressions in the paper. In the afternoon everyone will use wood type to set their own favorite quote/saying, and print them on the pressure-printed backgrounds!
Level: Beginner – no experience necessary
Registration closes August 12, 2023 and includes all necessary materials for class.
