$90.00

Intro to Letterpress Printing – Holiday Edition

(with Artist, Necole Witcher)
Saturday, December 5th & Sunday, December 6th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm

In this special holiday edition of our popular workshop, students will create a beautiful, handmade holiday gift. Typesetting a quote, embellishing it with a variety of images including holly borders, Christmas trees, snowflakes, etc. for a festive or classic feel.

The Roycroft was founded on the creation of printing pamphlets and beautiful books. In this introduction workshop, students will gain a basic history of letterpress printing, with highlights on Arts & Crafts individuals such as Ruskin, Morris and Hubbard. Printing vocabulary will be taught so that students can identify key components of a platen press and the tools used to prep a chase, such as quoin, reglets, slugs, pica, etc. Participants will take a quote of their choosing and learn how to hand-set type on a composing stick, transfer it to a chase and lock it up for printing. From there students will set their locked chase in position on the press and make multiple prints.

Supplies include all materials needed to make multiple copies of their typeset quote. The tools provided during the class project; type, chase, etc. will remain the property of the Campus. Students are asked to bring a quote of no more than two lines to the first class or they can choose from a variety of Hubbard quotes. You are also highly recommended to bring magnification glasses if needed, and to wear appropriate clothing while working with ink and mineral spirits.

 

Motivated to reconnect communities through art, Necole brings energy to overlooked places. She studies, paints and communes with many versions of Western New York, trying to derive its essence. When she is not in the woods or hamlets sketching, she’s most likely making prints at the Print Shop at the Roycroft Campus, educating people in this age-old art form.
