Visiting Artist Workshop: "Sketching" on Press & Notebook Binding with Lindsay Schmittle of Gingerly Press
OCTOBER 5 + 6 [10-4 PM] • $225 • All Materials Included
Always find yourself looking for your next notebook to fill with fresh ideas, lists, scribbles or sketches? Come print and bind your own in this two-day workshop with visiting artist, Lindsay Schmittle of Gingerly Press!
On Saturday, we'll use a curated selection of large metal type, wood type and ornaments from the Signal Return collection and an array of ink colors to print one-off notebook covers. We'll print with a playful proofing technique used by Lindsay in the Gingerly Press studio as a way to "sketch" ideas on press. Then on Sunday, we'll bind those covers into 6x9" notebooks with plenty of pages for recording all your freshest ideas. Each participant will create 3 hand-printed & hand-bound notebooks by the end of the weekend.
