Letterpress Workshop - Holiday Style
Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 10:00 AM - Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 4:00 PM (EST)
Join Signal-Return and AIGA Detroit for our first ever 2 day letterpress workshop! Only 12 seats available so please don't delay. We will be producing custom holiday cards using hand-selected papers, envelopes and vintage equipment. The workshop will focus on hand-compositing movable wood and metal type, locking-up, and printing. Signal-Return designers will prepare seasonal patterns and cuts that the workshop attendees can integrate in their compositions to make a rich and layered printed piece. Participants are encouraged to come prepared with at least one message they would like to typeset, a sense of the style of letterform they would like to use, and any supporting concept sketches.
Learn the basics of this incredible art form from the designers at Signal-Return, Detroit's emergent center for print media. You won't want to miss this!
Date: December 10 & 11
Time: 10a - 4p (lunch provided)
