Pressure Printing

  • North Bay Letterpress Arts 925-D Gravenstein Hwy South Sebastopol, California (map)

with Lisa Rappoport (Littoral Press)

In this workshop both printing novices and those with some experience will use the Vandercook proof press to richly decorate blank sheets of paper. In a spirit of playful experimentation, we’ll use NBLA’s collection of wood and metal type, along with lino cuts and found objects (very flat ones only!) such as leaves, fabric, and string, to print multi-layered artwork suitable for framing. Explore pressure printing, ghost printing, and serendipity. Each student takes home 8-10 sheets of their own creation.

Materials fee: $15 paid to instructor on day of class
