Printing from Polymer Plates: A Class

Modern Letterpress: Printing from Plates
This classs will spend the morning making polymer plates, discuss the strengths and challenges of printing from polymer plates. After a short break for lunch, we will print our designs (on our newly made polymer plates) and put the morning’s discussion into action.
Some prior letterpress experience (such as a Type Slam or Intro Class) is helpful for this fast-paced, hands-on class, but all levels are welcome.
Saturday, November 16 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Don’t need to have taken the first session. Students who did not attend the Modern Design course will make a plate using designs provided by the instructor.
