An Artist Book: Pressure Printing  Benjamin D. Rinehart

This class is ideal for students interested in exploring a personal vision through print and book making methods. Each student will create a personal narrative through the relief pressure printing process then bound as an accordion structure. With the direct and spontaneous forms of relief printmaking, participants will gain hands-on experience in all phases of creating a multi-colored one-of-a-kind printed book.  Learn how to print from the flat bed etching press and also by hand, allowing you to work at home with ease. To my fellow "pack-rats", I encourage you to bring all of those miscellaneous textures and paper embellishments to enhance your creation. Some found images, text and objects will also be available during class. All levels welcome!  Fri & Sat, Oct 5th & 6th, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  $290/$20 materials
