Sunday, July 21
12:00 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Instructor: Katie Platte
Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to acquire a collection of wonderful old wooden type. The type is beautiful all on its own but it’s meant to be used! Spend a day with us piecing letters together to make posters that can decorate your home or advertise your next event. We will experiment with adding layers of color through simple printing techniques during at the start of this class. However, to get the most out of this class, consider taking it along with The Art of Paste Painting class on Saturday, July 20. The beautiful papers that you create with Lorrie Grainger Abdo will add texture and contrast to the bold, graphic letters produced by wood type.
