Wine and Valentine Pressure Printing

Join us for a fun afternoon of printing in the studio. 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 glass of wine (21 and older) while you work the presses.

Participants will take home 5 handmade prints and bragging rights that you printed it yourself. It’s a drop-in event, so come by anytime during the event to make a print.

Saturday, February 3, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm, $15 for the afternoon.
