Pint and Print Events

Join us for a fun afternoon of pints and printing in the studio. We hold these drop-in events to let you try your hand at printing in the shop. Stay for a little or the whole time for some book arts fun.

Pressure PrintingSaturday, August 19, 3pm to 6pm

The printed image and the matrix plate.

This time we’ll be making pressure prints, a method similar to making 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.

No printing experience necessary. We’ll be there to help and it’s easy to do.

Enjoy a FREE local beer (19 and older) or non-alcoholic beverage while you work the presses. Participants will take home 6 handmade prints and bragging rights that you printed it yourself. $15 for the afternoon.
