In this 3-hour class we introduce traditional printmaking methods of relief, intaglio, and letterpress printing. Our beautiful press (Gloria) was custom designed and built in-house and is capable of achieving the necessary pressure for most printmaking techniques. Using a variety of pre-cut blocks made by hand, CNC, and laser, this class shows the versatility of a rolling-bed printing press. Monoprinting, chine-collé, and the printing of found-objects are also discussed and demonstrated. Students will leave class with the operational knowledge of the press, some example prints they created, and the inspiration to make their own blocks and print almost anything on paper!
