Cylinder Core Certificate Program
The handfed cylinder proof press, also known as the Vandercook press, has a special place in both print history and in teaching book arts. Immediate and accessible, yet nuanced and specific, it is the press that introduced many of us to letterpress. The four class Cylinder Core Certificate Program allows students to move quickly through the press basics while also addressing relief printing in general. Students who finish the four core classes are qualified to rent press time as well as move on to more advanced classes and techniques.
Cylinder Core 4 :: Digital into Analog
Bring digital back into analog in this final core course and learn to print from photopolymer plates. Apply your letterpress skills to artwork created digitally to make fantastic plates for printing. Walk away with a stack of greeting cards printed from polymer plates.

About the Instructor | Paula Gloistein

Past Student Reviews:
“Lots of hands-on work with the perfect amount of oversight/supervision from Paula”
“She really was terrific. I was impressed with how direct and clear she was and how well she managed class time.”
“Paula is a fantastic teacher and really easy to get along with and ask questions to. So many concepts that hadn't quite clicked for me yet really started coming together once she started teaching me."
“We got to be on our own to figure out how to problem solve when it arose and how to detect our problem. I had a better understanding of the printing process and the operating of the press.”
