In this hands-on class learn all about letterpress by printing on SNAP’s Vandercook and Challenge cylinder proofing presses to create multi-layer prints by carving linoleum and combining your images with metal and wood type. Artist Catherine Kuzik will teach you how to print your own hand-carved relief images and text to create some fabulous large posters and prints. You will learn fresh approaches to registration, mixing ink, typesetting, kerning, proofing, and printing. This course is open to beginners and those with letterpress experience who want to expand on their skills.
*Participants are invited to bring a selection of drawings, text or images to work from.
