Print Week
St Louis, Missouri
September 28 - October 1, 2017
Firecracker Press and the Ladies of Letterpress have teamed up for workshops, panels, a print market and tours.

A Moveable Type Feast w/Lynda Sherman and Marit Bockelie: This is a two-day class with Lynda Sherman (Bremelo Press) and Marit Bockelie (The Bremerton Letterpress Co.), two women printers from the heart of the Pacific Northwest. They will focus on the tension between planning out a project and letting come what will. In celebration of the harvest season and our nation’s agricultural heritage, students of this workshop are invited to bring favorite recipes to cut and splice into poems as a starting point. We will discuss what we eat, who grows it, how it gets to us, how it’s prepared and who we eat it with. We’ll play with the idea of recipe cards, broadsides and greeting/art cards. Students will take home a collection of printed pieces from the entire class. (multi-day workshop)
