Dirty Works: Letterpress Printed Exquisite Corpse Poster
with Ruby Figueroa
Friday, May 4; happy half-hour 5:30–6pm; class 6–8pm
Great for beginners
Embrace collaboration and whimsy to create a poster using wood type from MCBA’s collection. Starting with a round of the surrealist parlor game exquisite corpse, the group will choose the best collaged phrases to set in type and print on the Vandercook press. Layering color and text will produce a playful and unique poster that exists at the intersection of visual and literary art.
Join MCBA for Dirty Works, a series of casual classes, taking place on the first Friday of each month. Activities are designed for the bookishly curious and the creatively apprehensive; no experience needed.
