Printmaking with the Printing Press

March 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-5

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.
