2017 Summer Program

In this workshop students will learn about block printing and sculptural book structures – while experimenting with alternative materials. Students will do drawings that will be made into magnesium metal plates that they will print themselves.

Artists Jeff Mueller and Kerri Sancomb from Dexterity Press print shop will lead this workshop - the week will include a field trip to their print shop where students will have first hand experience printing their own artwork on a Universal I Vandercook printing press. We will incorporate the group's prints into a simple book structure for each participant to take home.
