Welcome to Print Camp! This is a weekend long intensive covering the beautiful print and binding methods we have here at the IPRC.
Day One: Letterpress
Day Two: Posterpress and Screenprinting
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!
Expand your letterpress printing knowledge: the poster press allows you to print on larger format sheets of paper using uniquely designed components. Make broadsides and event posters and learn the fundamentals of this special, fast lock-up flat-bed press. We will get acquainted with IPRC’s printshop and make a group project to commemorate the day. After completion of this class, you will be able to use the poster press during open printshop hours
In this class students will get to print a one-color design on paper they bring to class. Students must bring two copies on a transparency of their image. The image must be black and white only; no gray tone (half tone dots or cross hatching lines are fine but no washes) and sized as they would like it to print. If there is text, the image should be right-reading or positive-to-positive. We will discuss screens, coat screens, expose the transparencies on screens, wash them out, and print! Students will take home their prints. After taking the IPRC screen-print class, students will also have access to the IPRC screen-print studio during open studio hours.
