Printmaking with the Printing Press

Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 6:30 – 8:30PM

General Public: $25
MakeHaven Members: $20

Ready to try out this cool printing press? Bring a carved wood or linoleum 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.

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.

This class is taught by artist Michael Angelis.
