Macy Chadwick | Time Signifigance

This dynamic class combines three different image-generation techniques on the letterpress. First, students will create an atmospheric image with textural background printing (or pressure printing). Next, students will add shapes with relief printing or wood type. Finally, students will complete the last layer by printing with photopolymer plates made from line drawings. On the last day of Three Techniques in Three Days, the class will create a bound image sampler of students’ work.

Basic understanding of Vandercook cylinder presses required. Bring =textured papers, fabric, tape, string, scissors, X-ACTO® knife, and pencil. Register for this class at http://sfcb.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=1031

Learn letterpress printing techniques: pressure printing, relief printing, and printing with polymer plates.

Macy Chadwick will be teaching Three Techniques in Three Days at the San Francisco Center for the Book.

About the instructor:

Originally from the east coast, Macy Chadwick received an MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She currently creates books and prints under the imprint In Cahoots Press in Oakland, California and teaches classes throughout the Bay Area. Her work is in a vast amount of prominent collections in the U.S. and abroad.
Chadwick’s work addresses themes of memory, personal communication and visual language systems. Some of Chadwick’s prints include visual encoding into knotted string representing actual thoughts and phrases revealing a tangible language, but one that cannot be read in a conventional manner. She is interested in the connection between people: interactions both verbal and non-verbal, shared experiences, and the urge to communicate clearly
