Pressure and Relief: Techniques in Letterpress Printing

Instructor:  Ellen Knudson | Dates: October 19th – 20th, 2013

In this two day workshop, students will explore the possibilities of hand lettering, image, and the addition of handset metal types while considering the ethereal and concrete realities of the collagraph mediums. Letterpress printing from low relief surfaces creates texture and depth that can be subtle or stark. Using the Vandercook cylinder proofing presses, we will discover the hard and soft effects that collagraph and pressure prints offer. All levels welcome!
