This workshop will make use of wooden type and playfully combines relief plates, such as woodcuts and linocuts, while printing on our Vandercook letter press. Surface prints from etched zinc plates will also be explored in this four day workshop. The resulting single-sheet prints combining words or short texts with images make this workshop perfect for visual and text based artists.
