Learn to create imagery on a letterpress with alternative printing methods. This class is designed to expand upon traditional letterpress printing by exploring techniques other than hand-set type. Students will learn methods for quickly flooding the paper with color, texture, and imagery. An experimental approach will be taken to allow printers to create freely and spontaneously. These techniques are great for producing background texture to support additional content, but may also stand alone. Students will learn several techniques and create a small edition of prints employing one or more of them.
Open to all students, but prior completion of Intro to Letterpress is highly recommended.
