Introduction to Hot-Stamping
May 12 - May 13
May 12-13, Saturday & Sunday, 10am-4pm
Have you ever wondered how books, especially older leather bound books, get their gold lettering or decorative embossments? In this two day workshop you will be taught how. On the first day students will learn the basics of hot-stamping with the Center’s Kensol and Kwik Print presses. On the second day students will test their hand at paper, cloth-wrapped-boards and leather to determine your own preferences for personal projects and practice. Explore the nuances of each press and the different materials, and practice with an expert binder and stamper!
