Tim Collins has spent a lifetime around the print industry, from his father's print shop that used to be just a few blocks away from MakeICT, to doing his own letter press and relief printing. With the hand-made printing press that is in the print studio Tim will show you how to produce your own prints. He will work through the basic process of taking a wood block, applying ink, running it through the press and producing a print that can be replicated multiple times over.
No previous printing skills needed. We will use provided blocks for printing and will not be covering the block preparation process at this time. The agenda will include getting to know the print studio and supplies, Ink Options, Inking, Printing, Drying times, and Clean up. Attendee's will be able to successfully create a relief print.
The price for this event is FREE for Makerspace members and $5.00 for Non-members.
