Letterpress II: Broadsides and Books
with Monica Edwards Larson
Mondays: September 18, 25, October 2, 9, 16, 23; 6-9pm
Gain skills and confidence to work independently on a Vandercook press while creating two collaborative class projects: a multi-layered broadside and a book. Acquire technical skills with edition printing, color mixing, roller height adjustment, tympan change, and an introduction to photopolymer plate making. Explore the book as a whole — content selection, page layout, image and text interplay, typography, and other considerations that go into the design of a small book.
For the first time ever, master printer Monica Edwards Larson will teach Letterpress I and Letterpress II simultaneously. Participation in this class fulfills requirements for either Letterpress I or Letterpress II, but not both.
Certificate: 18 hours, Category A; fulfills letterpress requirement
