Welcome to Print Camp!
Letterpress, Posterpress and Screenprinting
Intro to Letterpress
Learn to set movable lead type and print on a table-top hand press in the IPRC print shop. You'll learn the vocabulary of printing and typesetting while getting a feel for this beautiful and historical process. Leave the class with a printed card and the satisfaction that comes with using 100-year-old equipment! Successful completion of this one-day class allows IPRC members access to open studio print hours so you can keep on printing!
Create impactful large scale prints in this class focused on IPRC's diverse collection of wood type. Gain advanced skills on our two large format poster presses while exploring the unique impression quality achieved with wood type. You'll learn about the history of wood type and how it is made with a hands-on demonstration of wood type created with a DIY pantograph router. Leave the class with two large collaborative prints and a deeper appreciation for this historic art form.
In this class students will get to print a one-color design on paper they bring to class. Students must bring two copies on a transparency of their image. The image must be black and white only; no gray tone (half tone dots or cross hatching lines are fine but no washes) and sized as they would like it to print. If there is text, the image should be right-reading or positive-to-positive. We will discuss screens, coat screens, expose the transparencies on screens, wash them out, and print! Students will take home their prints. After taking the IPRC screen-print class, students will also have access to the IPRC screen-print studio during open studio hours.
