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 project

Instructor: Violet Austerlitz is an Iowa City cartoonist and printmaker. She primarily works with silkscreen and letterpress prints, and draws comics about identity and the soil in which it grows.
