During this workshop with Dave Darcy (One Strong Arm), participants will design, typeset, and produce a unique letterpress printed poster. The workshop will utilize the museum’s collection of wood types. It will be a hands-on experience, covering the fundamentals of letterpress printing techniques and some of the craft’s history and background.
Beautiful results can be achieved by playing with the layout, ink effects, and the texture of the wood type. All stages including the inking will be done by hand… think big type, short words, and bold colours.
