Event Description In this class, students will learn the basics of letterpress printing with lead and wood type on Asbern cylinder and flatbed proof presses. We will get familiar with typesetting, mixing ink, proper lockup with furniture and quoins, printing techniques, and the cleaning process. Students will be able to create editions of prints and receive guidance for a project of their choice, which could include broadsides, chapbooks, posters, and cards.
