Intro to Letterpress
It is time for another round of introduction to letterpress printing! In this workshop students will print an edition of 15 custom stationery cards on Remarque’s C&P platen press. In this special small class, everyone will set and print their own type and learn to set up and run the press.
Each student will be provided with pre-cut paper and envelopes for their stationery cards . We will start with the press already set up and ready to print a solid block of color from a linoleum block. Students will be introduced to the press and take turns using the press to print on one side of their cards, which will be laid out on the rack to dry.
Class size limited to 4 students- don't miss this chance!
Date: 12:00 - 4:00 October 21

Sintra Plate Printing- Relief and Intaglio all in One!
with Yoshi Nakagawa
In this two-day workshop with visiting Tacoma-based artist, Yoshi Nakagawa, you will explore the possibilities of printing with Sintra plates. What is a Sintra plate? Sintra is a type of PVC foam board. Lightweight and strong, it is easy to cut, carve, drill and sand. It has a consistently smooth, slightly matt surface. The more you experiment with this material, the more you might wonder – is there anything Sintra foamboard can’t do?
Sintra plate printing is accessible to anyone, and it is easy to get very satisfying results. When you print the plate as a relief print (like linoleum or woodcuts), you take an impression from the top surface of the plate, and any incised or cut lines will not be inked, and so will print white, if your paper is white. We will mainly work with techniques using an exacto knife and 1.5mm v-gouge fine carving tool.
In this workshop, we will explore all these possibilities, using printmaking papers and an etching press. All levels of experience welcome for this special class!

Textures, Layers and Transparencies: Collagraph and Monotype
The collagraph is a wonderfully affordable printmaking technique- all you need is mat board, textured items and glue to create fabulous textured prints. In this workshop participants will learn how to make collagraphs that can be printed immediately (no sealant, so no drying time!) and how to ink them using transparency and viscosity techniques. We will print our plates with dry paper on the press and add elements of monotype and stencils to create richly layered, textured, one-of-a-kind prints. We will work fairly small so much experimentation can occur! No experience necessary!
