Alternative Letterpress: Pressure Printing Workshop

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Explore planned and spontaneous ways of creating prints!
Join us for this one-day workshop to learn how to create pressure prints. We will explore creating patterns, textures, and imagery. Pressure printing is an alternative image-making technique where a flexible plate as a backing sheet is placed behind the printing sheet and run over a type-high, inked surface. Unique and atmospheric work can be the result of this fun process. We will explore both planned and spontaneous ways of creating prints to inspire future work.
