Letterpress Summer School
With Satvinder Kalsi
Mon. Sept. 11th. - Fri. Sept.15th. 2017
This course caters for beginners as well as those with some previous
experience. In the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the studio we will take into account the needs of the individual, whether experienced or new to letterpress.
To begin with there will be a viewing and discussion of letterpress printed work and techniques. However this is a practical course. The overall aim is to give people the experience and confidence to be able to use the facilities at Inkspot Press on an open access basis should they want to, or to give them insight and skills to be able to transfer to another studio setting.
The course covers hand type setting through to printing on the FAG and Vandercook proofing presses.
Following demonstrations and practice, participants are offered exercises in single and two colour printing plus simple bookwork.
There will be a small number of participants - 4 maximum - so that each person can work at their own pace depending on experience.
Get your hands dirty but keep the prints clean!
