What you'll learn in this printmaking class:

CMYK printing, sometimes called four color process, is like magic happening before your eyes. CMYK refers to the four colors used: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, which are printed in layers to create a full color image. With each layer more information is added to the print, more colors appear, and then with the printing of the final layer, voila, you have a full color image! 

On the Vandercook we can make prints like this using photopolymer, which has the potential to hold an incredible amount of fine detail. For Letterpress, this process is considered experimental, but with some prior planning and good registration practices, one can create beautiful full color images that will integrate seamlessly with other letterpress work. In this 5 day workshop students will learn the process of printing full color photographic images on the Vandercook. 

We will go through every step from preparing your image files, to strategies for tight registration, color mixing, and, of course, printing. Prior letterpress experience is helpful but not required.

We will hold your payment if a class is under enrolled until it has met its minimum enrollment.
