Alternative Image Making on a Cylinder Press

Pressure printing is a unique alternative to incorporating imagery into letterpress prints. The process uses a flexible plate made from layered paper pieces that gets printed behind another piece of paper over a flat, inked surface. In this workshop students will learn how to deconstruct an image, build a plate by hand, and print their plates. The instructor will discuss methods for transcribing pictures into cut paper and the process of layering plates to create gradients and detail. Students will learn the basics of letterpress printing and leave with a small edition of their own relief printed imagery.

*This workshop is open to beginners.
**This workshop will take place on Thursdays, April 5 & 12, 2018 from 6:30-9:30pm.
