About the Workshop:

Taught by Instructor Sarah Nicholls, this in-person workshop for students who have taken Letterpress I (or have equivalent experience) begins with a short review of press operation and printing techniques. Then students will focus on further refining their printing skills while learning about image-based printing. Students will also learn how to register and print two-color designs, generate images using linocut and pressure printing, and improve printing skills through practice. This class is designed to support students’ learning in a structured and supportive environment.

Please Note: All staff, artists, students, and guests must show proof of vaccination upon entering CBA’s facilities and are required to wear a mask during the entirety of the class.
