Letterpress has been experiencing a full-blown revival.  The workshop will introduce attendees to the process of printing through the terms, tools and mechanics of printing, and will move forward to create expressive compositions on a Line-O-Scribe sign press.  We will use wood type, P22 bloc and relief imagery to create works with a message.  Attendees will be introduced to each process and create an edition of inspirational prints, with the goal of exchanging prints with other attendees.  Each attendee will design and print an edition of thought-provoking prints using wood type and a custom created relief image.  They will also create an edition of cards and envelopes.
