Event description

Description

Ready to try out this cool printing press? Bring a wood or linoleum carved block if you have one, or use a sample block & type provided by our instructor! Learn to pull pull your own prints using the Chandler & Price press. The advantages of using a press over hand-printing are:
  • the press can deliver much more pressure which helps achieve a more consistent ink distribution across the print
  • registration for placement on the page and for printing multiple colors becomes much easier
  • printing editions (a series of identical copies) becomes possible.
If bringing your own block: If you have a block that is already carved and ready to print, it should be 1" thick or less, and within the press's printable area of 10" x 40".

Printing ink and enough paper for each participant to make an edition of at least 5 prints will be provided for the workshop by MakeHaven.
