Create impactful large scale prints in this class focused on IPRC’s diverse collection of wood type. Gain advanced skills on our two large format poster presses while exploring the unique impression quality achieved with wood type. You’ll learn about the history of wood type and how it is made with a hands-on demonstration of wood type created with a DIY pantograph router. Leave the class with two large collaborative prints and a deeper appreciation for this historic art form.
