PRINTMAKING RETREAT
Hands-On Image Making Fun!

September 28-30, 2018


Explore an exciting array of printmaking workshops, most of which involve printing simply and easily by hand. Get colorful inks on your fingers—and maybe in your blood—while learning inspiring techniques of Moku Hanga Japanese woodcuts, multi-color linocuts, hand-colored woodcuts, monoprints, copper etching, and silk screen printing. Join in the fun and sign up for whatever intrigues you. Try a new technique or sign up for more fun in your favorite mode. Printmaking students will lunch together and peruse each other’s work (class fees include lunch).

If your preferred class is full, click here to join a waiting list.

18C363P - Design and Print Posters on Vandercook Proof Presses


18C363P - Design and Print Posters on Vandercook Proof Presses
 

Come learn the basics of letterpress printing at Mayday Press. You will design and print your own edition of 12”x18” posters. Using our collection of antique wood type, Ludlow type, cuts and ornaments, we will guide you through the process of printing a two-color, phrase-based poster. You will learn to set wood type, cast hot metal type, lock-up, register and use one of four Vandercook proof presses. We will guide you through the process of printing a gradient, textured, or flat color background for your poster. We’ll work together to bring your ideas to life, but the composition and content are up to you. Please come prepared with a short phrase—the shorter the better—no longer than a sentence in length. Let’s have fun while getting inky!

Each participant will leave with an edition of 10-12”x18” posters.
Class fee includes lunch.

Level: Novice and above

Student Supply List:
Please come prepared with a short phrase-the shorter the better-no longer than a sentence in length.
