Introduction to Letterpress Printing Letterpress is one of the oldest printing techniques, a raised plate or type is inked and pressed into paper resulting in a sharp image that leaves a lasting impression. Each sheet of paper is hand-fed through the press one at a time and one color at a time. You will be printing on a 1930's platen press and designing your own note cards or small prints to frame, or both. You will learn the basics including the general mechanics of the press, as well as preparing the press for printing. We will work with photopolymer plates to create the finished product. With a cap of 4 people per workshops, there is a lot of space for experimentation and play. This is your workshop!
Zoe And Mark
I have been a letterpress printer and graphic designer for over 25 years. My passion for letterpress came from a class I took when I first moved to Vermont. Since that class, I have acquired two Chandler & Price platen presses, one with a motor and one that is operated by a foot treadle. Teaching class allows me to share my enthusiasm for the printing process. The presses I work on date from the 1930's.
Ce qui est inclus
We will supply snacks, soft drinks, coffee, tea and a little something sweet!
All of the materials you need for the class will be supplied.
The Zoë Ink printing studio resides on the same site as our Woodland Retreat Airbnb in Huntington, Vermont. Super convenient should you decide to stay here and enjoy a workshop. We are nestled in a woodland setting and the studio has a wall of windows that look out onto a forest.
