A class in creating postcards on a letterpress will be held on two days, Wednesday, February 9th and Wednesday February 16th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be taught by Nicole Poole and Sarah Archer.
Print your own edition of postcards in the Hoffman Center’s letterpress shop. Nicole Poole will lead participants in designing and carving images out of linoleum blocks which will be printed on a 100 year old platen press under the instruction of Sarah Archer. We will then have the opportunity to print text on the backs of the postcards and/or layer on top of our images using moveable metal or wood type. No printmaking experience necessary, just a desire to create beautiful correspondence art.
After taking this course students will be qualified to utilize the Hoffman Center’s letterpress shop for further projects during open studio hours.
