Discover the creative potential of printing in layers on the letterpress. This dynamic class combines three different printmaking techniques, allowing you to create a series of beautiful prints with both intentional design and chance overlaps. Students will learn three processes pressure printing (drawing rich texture from objects creating a low relief surface), linoleum block printing (a traditional relief method using hand-carved blocks), and polymer plate printing, (inviting the integration of digital media and typography). Treat yourself to a weekend of creative play and leave with an inspiring series of prints!
