In the modern era, we think little to nothing of typing text, adding graphics, and pressing “print” from our devices. This workshop will explore how printing technology evolved over centuries, including the creation and uses of type and images. Participants will have hands-on time to set a small item of their choice, such as, but not limited to, a business card, personal stationery, greeting card, or other creative document, and should come prepared with a project idea or concept. Participants will also assist in operating a 19th-century press in the Middlefield Printing Office to complete their project. Casual, layered dress is suggested; participants will be working with and around black and colored inks, with heat furnished by a wood stove. Lunch is included with the workshop fee.
Class Fee: Members $85, Non-members $95. Lunch will be provided. All materials included. Requires advance registration, class limited to 6 participants. Please bring an apron or comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Location: Middlefield Printing Office.
