Summer Print Camp
Welcome to Print Camp 2013! This is a weekend long intensive covering the beautiful print and binding methods we have here at the IPRC.
Day One: Letterpress (10am-5pm)
Day Two: Photo-Emulsion Screenprint and Bindfast Bookbinding (11am-5:30pm)
Intro to Letterpress
Learn to set movable lead type and print on a table-top hand press in the IPRC print shop. You’ll learn the vocabulary of printing and typesetting while getting a feel for this beautiful and historical process. Leave the class with a printed card and the satisfaction that comes with using 100-year-old equipment! Successful completion of this one-day class allows IPRC members access to open studio print hours so you can keep on printing!
In this class, students will learn the basics of screenprinting; tools and materials will be covered, as well as techniques ranging from pre-press, exposing an emulsion-coated screen, all the way through screen reclamation. Students will be able to print a one-color design of their choice, and should come to class with a black and white image (no gray washes) smaller than 8.5″ by 11″. After taking the IPRC screenprint class, students will have access to the IPRC screenprint studio during open studio hours.
Bindfast Perfect Binding
Using the Bind-Fast 5, you can bind as many as 30 actual softcover books or zines per hour. Completion of this workshop authorizes IPRC members to use the Bind-Fast during supervised binding hours, so you can take your publishing projects to the next level.
Cost: $100 members / $150 nonmembers
