Vandercook + Pilot Press Intro Letterpress Workshop at The Arm NYC
In this one day workshop for beginners you will learn the basic principles of letterpress printing on the Vandercook proof press. We will go over the parts of the press and how it operates and how to print from metal type, wood type, photopolymer plates and hand cut linoleum and wood blocks.
This one day class will prepare you to use the presses in our studio needing only occasional guidance from the studio personnel. Supplies will be on hand to experiment in printing cards, flyers, posters, coasters & hang tags.
Once participants have completed this class they will be qualified to book time on the presses in The Arm's public access letterpress studio.
