With apologies for cross-posting. . . .

More to follow. . . .

Letterpress WOW:  Printing in the Wonderful World of Type
With April Sheridan

April 19 & 20 (Please note -  date change)
Saturday and Sunday 10:00 – 4:00
Cost $180

Come celebrate spring as you learn basic letterpress skills – play with furniture, type sticks, reglet and lock-up bars. Learn new meanings for deadlines and registration. April has lots of fun facts about the history of wood type, and can help you explore how letterforms can be used as images. The class will collaborate to make a unique group project. Each participant will have a copy to take away at the end of the day on Sunday.

Class size is limited to 6 participants.

Computer Design for Polymer
With Dana Bowers

April 22, 29, May 6, 13, 27, & June 3
Tuesdays 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Cost $270

This class is designed for letterpress printers who want to learn how to best utilize computer design software for letterpress printing. Students will design and systematically learn how to layout several design elements, including scanning, computer illustration, and type. The final product will be to prepare a file to output as film.

Each class will be 3 hours. The first half of the class will be lecture, and the second half will be hands-on application of the techniques for personal projects.

Students should have their own computers with Adobe Illustrator. We have a few on site, but encourage bringing your own laptop.

Class size is limited to 8 participants.

Bookmaking & Creative Writing for Teachers
With Leah Mayers

May 24th
Saturday 10 – 4
Cost $108 (includes materials fee)

This class is for teachers who want their students to love books – both inside and out. Leah works with art teachers who want to incorporate writing into their curriculum, and/or elementary and secondary teachers who want to enhance the teaching of literacy through making books and writing poetry. Teachers will walk away with samples of multiple structures that will be easy to incorporate into regular classrooms as well as art rooms. Leah’s own work as a teacher helps her structure projects that work within the constraints of a real world classroom.

Here’s a chance to explore your own creativity rather than grading someone else’s.
