Intro to Letterpress


Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29 & 30, 1-5pm

Registration Deadline: Sept. 25

Teens 14+ and adults

A weekend course in the basics of the intricate technique of letterpress printing. The first day will cover the theory (terminology, equipment, the mysteries of the type case, and more); the second will cover the practice (setting type, lock-up and make-ready on the press, and printing). This course will give students a basic overview of ICPC’s three presses and collection of type, preparing them to take more advanced workshops or work on their own projects.

Instructor: Violet Austerlitz is an Iowa City cartoonist and printmaker, who likes telling stories about identity and creatures with big teeth. She is a long-time member of ICPC and is very happy to be part of such a vibrant community of artists. She also draws and writes a webcomic called The Satanic Mechanic.
