WHO: Facility for Arts Research
WHAT: Pressure and Relief Letterpress Workshop
WHERE: FAR’s Small Craft Advisory Press
WHEN: October 19th and 20th

Letterpress printing from low relief surfaces creates texture and depth that can be subtle or stark. The collagraph relief technique involves adhering low relief materials (such as card stock, tape, chip board, or fabric) to a type-high block, inking the block, and pulling a print from it. The pressure print technique involves placing similar materials directly beneath the printing paper and pulling a print from the inked type-high block or plate. These two methods can be applied singly or in combination. Using the Vandercook cylinder proofing press, we will discover the hard and soft effects that collagraph and pressure prints offer. Students are invited to 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.
