This one-day workshop covers a broad range of materials and techniques for letterpress printing on fabric. Fabrics will include, muslin, drill, canvas, cotton t-shirts and flour-sack dish towels. Varieties and behaviors of inks will be discussed, and a variety of impression techniques: the barren, the hammer, body-weight, roller press, sleigh press, hand press and others. Working in color and registration will also be reviewed. Students will print their own work on flour-sack dish towels (provided), t-shirts (students provide), and a group banner project printed on the Albion iron hand press. Students that practice linoleum block cutting are urged to bring their work for printing. Mitchel will also bring examples of his own letterpress on fabric work, including distowels, canvases, and large-format scrolls. Included: $10 lunch voucher to Dog Town and $10 materials fee.
