Letterpress & Printmaking for Artists Books
Lucy Guenot and Jane Sasanow
Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th April 2020
10am – 4pm
There will be a maximum of 6 people on this course.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
Line, texture and shape are explored here through letterpress and printmaking.
Lucy Guenot and Jane Sasanow have designed a course that will give you the opportunity of playing with text and image for single sheet book formats or single sheets which can be stitched together. They will explore the possibilities of mark making and texture through debossing, collagraphs and linocuts using our etching presses and relief press. There will be a simple introduction to basic type setting and printing.
Play with letter forms and text, handprinted as well as using our Vandercook proofing press. Your experiments will result in a completed artist book at the end of the weekend. This course is suitable for all abilities.
