Print Camp 2012
Welcome to Print Camp 2012! This is a weekend long intensive covering the beautiful print and binding methods we have here at the IPRC.

Day One: Letterpress

Day Two: Photo-Emulsion Screenprint and Fold Bookbinding

Class Descriptions:

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!

In this class, students will learn the basics of screenprinting; tools and materials will be covered, as well as techniques ranging from pre-press, exposing an emulsion-coated screen, all the way through screen reclamation. Students will be able to print a one-color design of their choice, and should come to class with a black and white image (no gray washes) smaller than 8.5 by 11. After taking the IPRC screenprint class, students will have access to the IPRC screenprint studio during open studio hours.

Fun with Fold Books
Learn how to make seven different fold books, most from an ordinary sheet of letter-sized paper, including the "cave book" (a.k.a. "stroke book"), the "peep-show book," the "skinny surprise book," and the "32-page wonder." These forms lend themselves well to small zines, easily reproduced. In some cases, the structure of a fold book may inspire the content. One bonus model made from a much larger sheet of paper results in a fun folder with multiple pockets for holding small booklets or postcards. Full instructions / layout guides for each book will be provided by the instructor, and thorough demos followed by practice will give everyone a set of models to take home.
