This course is a logical follow-on from Bed Press Printing, but no experience is necessary, and participants are welcome to jump in here, too. Get semi-serious about precision printing with platen press work.
Presses for this workshop include our 100+ year old Chandler and Price platen presses as well as their user-friendly little sibling, the Pilot table-top platen press.
Participants will learn to set type, build a chase to transfer type to a platen press, ink, and operate the press to create a couple of one-color prints of their designs.
Our instructors will guide you through typesetting, chase building, and printing, offering tips and tricks that give your work an elegant touch.
