Printmaking Workshop

 

Large Linoleum Letterforms - A two day Relief printing workshop

Instructor: Bryan Baker   

The appreciation of letterforms is not reserved just for graphic designers; this introductory level carving and printing class is for anyone taken by the allure of great typography.  This two-day workshop will focus on printing beautiful hand-carved renderings of 12" tall singular letters. Whether your interests are in following striking modern classics, exploring ornate display typefaces,  or  modifying and inventing your own characters; the instructor will have a truly vast array of reference books and vintage type-catalogs for you to draw inspiration from.  All participants will be printing an edition of their own work for themselves, and exchanges with fellow classmates will be encouraged so that everyone can also leave with a nice suite of other typographic specimens. All materials will be supplied, and no previous experience is necessary.
