Freedom of the press no longer belongs only to those who own one! This course will cover experimental, low-tech printmaking methods, most of which will not require a press. Each week we will learn a new print technique combined with simple book structures that can be used in endless combinations.

What will you learn in this course?

In this hands-on course, students will learn several basic bookbinding structures including accordion, single section pamphlet, simple pop-up structures and interactive structures like the hexaflexagon and the flip book. Some basic printmaking techniques will also be covered including xerox transfer, collagraph, intaglio and lo-tech lithography using pronto plates.

What will you do in class?

Demonstrations and studio work time.
