Letterpress Basics: "Poetic Math"

  • Striped Light 107 Bearden Pl Knoxville, TN, 37917 United States (map)

                  So...  You wanna learn how to do some letterpress printing.  This workshop will cover all the basics of traditional hand-typesetting and also the operation of our flatbed cylinder proof presses.   But, we have to have something to put on the paper.  The theme of the night for this class will have everybody rally around the idea of making compositions based on "Poetic Math" that they invent as we play this the collection of vintage wood and metal typography in the Striped Light collection. Banjo + Tiger = ?'ll decide.    It is going to be fun, it will be a bit strange,  everyone will leave a stack of beautiful prints that they've designed.

Workshop price: $65
