Letterpress Workshop: Mapping it out
Introductory Letterpress Workshops at Catch and Release Press
York College Studios in Marketview Arts
Do you love typography? Letters that are older than your grandparents?
How about really cool machines? Machines with history?
Are you okay with getting your hands dirty?
Let\\\’s combine all of these in a Letterpress workshop at Catch and Release Press.
No experience? No problem.
Our workshop series in letterpress is offered to anyone who wants to learn how to print. It is designed to be a place of physical making. You will be engaged in the traditional art of letterpress, a form of design expression that has become relevant again as an alternative method. This workshop will challenge you to consider analog creative typographic elements. You will discover what is old is new again.
The hands-on workshop covers all the basics of letterpress printing. Attendees will learn first-hand how to set wood printing type, learn how to print using our shop presses and how to work safely in the studio. The majority of the workshop consists of sifting through C&RP’s vast collection of 100-year-old wood type and other letterpress things to create and print beautiful form.
