Event description

Description

Number Theory

In this two-day workshop, we will contemplate nothing, as something. Beginning with a short reading about the invention of the number ‘0’, we will discuss our various perspectives on zero, and then set type/print. By printing, we will make something tangible/material from the image of ‘nothing’.

The work we produce may be simple, reflective, playful, serious. It may consist of a statement, a comment, and/or a series of zeros/0's, as forms. You may choose to print a meditation on the ways in which this character has informed the progress of history, or ‘other'. How you interpret the number '0' is entirely open to you. The full range of metal and wood type from the .918 collection, will be available to use.

We will make a set of 2-colour prints, and share them with the group. Each person will contribute an individual print, and these will be collated, along with a collaborative cover print, designed by the group. This set of 5 prints will make up the edition entitled ’Number Theory’.

The workshop will take place over 2 days, to allow for plenty of discussion, instruction, slow setting of type, and time for printing. The cost of the workshop includes being able to take away three individual prints, plus a copy of the edition, which includes a set of all prints from the group.

No experience is necessary, since basic instruction in letterpress typesetting will be provided. Guidance will be on hand during both days of thinking and printing.

All materials (paper/ink), plus tea and coffee and lunch, are included. This workshop runs over two Saturdays: December 9th and 16th. It starts at 10.00am and ends at 5.00pm, on both days.

Maximum of 4 participants.
