Let’s print a letterpress zine together! In this free workshop, each student will use a combination of unconventional objects and pressure print templates to design a unique page (or pages) on the letterpress. At the end of the workshop, there will be a saddle-stitch binding demo of the zines.
Print, bind and take home a saddle-stitched zine to inspire future projects.
This workshop is an approachable opportunity for students of any background to engage with the letterpress. It offers students already involved with book studio and printmaking processes a chance to learn new processes and have fun on the press.
