New Letterpress: Inkwipes & Abstract Expressionism with Christopher Fritton

  • IS Projects 17 Northwest 5th Street Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33301 United States (map)

Letterpress printing is often restricted to the grid, offering opportunities only in the X and Y axes, but it is possible to break those boundaries and create prints that defy categorization. Students will learn how to use the letterpress in novel, unintended ways that produce more expressionistic results. In 3 hours, attendees will create a series of one-of-a-kind ink wipes that can be used as backgrounds for other typographical experiments, or left as-is. Come learn how to paint with the letterpress!
