Get your letterpress on! Use typographical elements to create visual representations inspired by works of art in the Frye galleries. Students learn basic nineteenth-century printing techniques such as ink mixing, typesetting, and relief printing and receive an introduction to typography and bookbinding. Once the rules are mastered, we break them: Students experiment with type using wood and metal printing elements to create layered broadsides. Each week builds on the next, culminating in a bound edition of class prints using drum leaf binding. Students take home a copy of the book as well as several prints. Be prepared to get your hands dirty!
For beginning students ages 15+
