ONSITE: Introduction to Letterpress

Explore the letterpress printing process, which dates back to the 15th century and the time of Gutenberg. We’ll cover typesetting, inking, printing and paper selection as you become familiar with the terminology and VisArts’ presses. You’ll have time to create multiple pieces and trade work with classmates, which will help you build a small collection of handmade letterpress art.

Special Notes

  • You will need to provide any specialty paper for individual projects; basic paper and other materials and equipment are provided. This class uses a historic printing press which requires the ability to stand and use your legs and arms simultaneously to operate.
