Taught by Beth Sheehan (Resident Artist)
This two-day workshop exploring the creation and printing of broadsides will showcase a variety of techniques, including, handset type, monotyping on the letterpress, pressure printing, and pochoir. Please come with haikus or a short poem (ideally less than 50 words) for use in your prints. Artist-in-Resident Beth Sheehan will show examples of contemporary broadsides, and will discuss the relationship between text and image, the history of broadsides, and best practices for printing and editioning.
