Week long letterpress course by The Print Project

Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in letterpress printing but never been able to find anywhere that will let you get down and dirty with large bits of woodtype for days on end?

Well, look no further… in what is a first for West Yorkshire, The Print Project is offering up a week long opportunity to do just that at its premises in Shipley.

image

For five working days you will be let loose in the workshop to print whatever you so desire with access to 100+ cases of wood & metal type, (some dating back 150+ years), 3 proofing presses, enough ink to float a battleship and mountains of paper.

The course is aimed at those who wish to complete a project from start to finish. With on hand guidance & best practice available in bucketfuls you will go away at the end of the week with items of printed beauty and a head full of new ideas.

The course will cover:

Working with wood & metal type
Working with colour
Good working practice
Ink mixing & inking techniques
Course details:

4 attendees per class
Materials included
Gallons of tea, coffee & biscuits
£400 per person for 5 days
Whilst it isn’t essential, attendees who have taken a letterpress course elsewhere or have a background in graphic design will find this course easier to get to grips with.

Well hello, Messrs. Owl. Might tweak a little more and I’m flipflopping about the colors… but with luck I’ll have this print ready for TCAF!

And yes, I’ll have copies to sell online too. A lot of them!

Hello Everyone!

Gathering work for a potential show here in Austin. On the look for a venue to show case some of my large work and a few of my pages from some of my favorites from the past that I have gathered to go with some of the work that I am doing currently. Hoping to get the word out about the book as well. 

Here is some snaps for my potential show in Austin for the Nimbus+Black art show (specifically the sketch books). At the very top is process of my limited addition screen print that will be posted on the store once finished. 

Remember, all who purchase the print will be getting a free sketch sent to from me for helping fund the Mushroom King graphic novel. 

Hope to see you guys when the show is all set up in austin. 

Thanks for staying awesome readers and coming to visit the art created here on Nimbus Black!

P.S. Come visit me here and chat it up!

Sincerely,

Lamar Mathurin
