This 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.
