Printshop Renter Training and Guillotine Workshop
Get trained to use both the guillotine and the printshop in one three hour workshop. You will learn to operate the Center's motorized guillotine paper cutter, which makes it easy to cut large stacks of paper and to trim the edges of books. You will also learn how to care for our Vandercook proof presses. Topics to be covered include proper press inking and cleaning, roller height adjustment, changing the tympan paper, as well as the Center's general rules for working in the Jane Mead Timken Printshop. Completion of this course (or a waiver) is required for authorization to use the machinery. Prerequisite: Letterpress I or equivalent experience. Some prior printing experience is required. Required course for our certificate program.
Deadline to register: One week before class starts.
