Join us for another fun evening of pints and printing in the studio. This time we’ll be making pressure prints, a method similar to rubbings. A type-high block is set in the press bed, and a handmade low-relief plate – in this case your collaged shapes and words – is inserted behind the printing paper. The higher the relief, the darker that area is. It’s a quick and simple way of making images and text. Unlike most printing, the text and imagery don’t have to be reversed.
Enjoy a FREE local beer (21 and older) while you work the presses.
Participants will take home 4 handmade prints and bragging rights that you printed it yourself. $20 for the evening (additional prints $1 each).
Thursday, February 5, 7pm to 9pm
