In this class participants will work in two Detroit community print shops. The first two sessions will take place at Ocelot Print Shop, where participants will create imagery to be transferred to a screen and printed. The printed sheet is designed to be folded up to create a simple book structure. At Signal-Return, in the third and fourth sessions of the workshop participants will learn how to set type, properly lock it up in a press and print, creating a title page and cover wrapper for the book. Participants will receive page layout instructions prior to the first session.

Instructors: Ocelot Print Shop and Signal-Return Press staff
