In this hands-on studio class, students will learn basic letterpress techniques. As an introduction to the medium, students will learn about different fonts, type setting, different papers, and press operation. This is a studio based class in which students will work both independently and together. In addition to printing, students will create a technical journal documenting their discoveries and also develop a written artist statement. At the end of the session, students will present and participate in a group critique to investigate and support their accomplishments.
