Print, stitch, rip, glue, carve, press, repeat! In this weeklong intensive, students will learn how to operate and print on a tabletop letterpress. We will also explore other methods of printmaking including linocut, rubber-cut, and solvent image transfer. Make your own books and deconstruct and alter old books to insert your own content. No printmaking experience required.
