Penland School of Crafts

Session 1 May 28 - June 9, 2017

Letterpress: Text is Image
This workshop will focus on press and print shop skills and the dissemination of hand-composed information. We'll discuss and experiment with content and layout using Penland's collection of type. Through individual and collaborative exploration we'll experience creative decision making on press. Techniques discussed in daily demos will include typesetting on the stick and on the bed, type-high content from reductive and additive techniques, flip turn, and overprint. This workshop will culminate with a multiples exchange with focus on adhesive and nonadhesive presentation. All levels.
