one-night letterpress class (beginner)
Tuesday, August 16th: 6pm-8pm
(then access to open studio hours Tuesday, August 23rd, from 4pm-9pm)
Join the analog revival & learn the art of letterpress printing at the Helen DeVitt Jones Print Studio at CASP! Students will learn how to hand-set type from our expanding collection of metal & wood typefaces; proper use of the Vandercook SP-15 & other proof/relief presses in the Helen DeVitt Jones Print Studio; use vintage plates from our quirky collection; layout of the California Job Case; & more!
Instruction will be for two hours, then students can use the listed open studio hours to work on projects. Projects may include group letterpress posters, one & multicolor prints, stationary, & individual broadsides.
No previous experience required. This course is designed to educate about the basics of letterpress, so after completion you can letterpress print any projects during CASP's open studio hours.
Course Fee: $35 (includes paper & ink, plus access for up to five open studio hours!)
