Sourced Press: Community Workshop – Pressure Print with Wood Type w/Leslie Smith
March 23 : 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
These workshops give the participants an opportunity to dive into perfecting their craft in letterpress, booking making, woodtype prints, gelli printing, lithography and more. All offered by skilled printers and artists from our community.
Learn to use wood type to make beautiful imagery. Students will mix wood type and printed collage work called pressure printing to make dynamic imagery.
