Eileen Wallace
Drawing with the Press

This workshop will teach good printing practices in tandem with a healthy dose of experimentation. We’ll use handset type, carved blocks, and photopolymer plates and expand our choices through alternative materials. We’ll build our own type-high blocks and design creative lock-ups in the press in an effort to stay connected to the process and use the press as a way of drawing. To escape the ease and convenience of digital tools and enlarge our material vocabulary, we’ll experiment with alternatives and bring a new voice to the letterpress conversation.
