Intro to Artist Books: Linocut & Letterpress (5 Week Course)Tue 3/1 - Tue 3/29
5 week course meeting once a week on Tuesdays, 6-9pm
*Includes a discount to one of our Open Studio Nights in March
This is a 5 part all-inclusive introduction to making Artist Books which features relief and letterpress printing and pamphlet stitch binding. Participants will learn how to set lead type and print with a Vandercook proofing press while creating a collaborative book project. Students will have the option to try their hand at carving a linoleum block and printing it on the Vandercook Press. The final session will be used to sew the books together.
This is the perfect workshop for artists looking to try their hand at book arts, incorporate text into their work, or even for writers looking get a little inky.
This workshop is limited to 4 participants. All necessary materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to prepare some text, ideally their own writing prior to the workshop (no more than 100 words).
