Print to Empower is a letterpress wood type workshop for 14 participants.

Application and advance registration is required.

Application deadline: October 2

This letterpress workshop will introduce 14 participants to the ways that printing has historically been used—and continues to be used—as a tool to affect social change. A brief history of empowerment through print will be presented at the beginning of the workshop. Participants will use a Showcard proof press and wood type from The Printing Museum’s permanent collection to create a two-color letterpress political poster (edition of 12) for public display and dissemination.

Print to Empower is organized by Keelin Burrows, Curator of The Printing Museum, and Travis Smithletterpress printer.

The program is presented in collaboration with The Printing Museum.

Please apply as soon as possible. This workshop is limited to 14 people. Answers to the three application questions (on the Eventbrite registration) will provide the basis for selection of participants. Notification of acceptance will be sent by email on October 3, 2017.
