Pressure printing is a relief technique that uses low relief collage and stencils on the press. The results are prints with rich, painterly, spontaneous layers and textures. Participants can combine this technique with more graphic approaches to text and image, using wood type to create dynamic, layered imagery in the poster format. Students will be introduced to relief printing on a proofing press, experiment with new techniques, and think creatively about design.
