Printing Poetry
Saturday, May 17th , 10-5
A special weekend workshop offered in collaboration with the St Marks Poetry Project.
The way words are set on a page can alter impression and give literally 'deeper' meaning to a poem. In this 2-day intensive, May 17-18, learn how making measured decisions about font, size, color and arrangement, along with the physical experience of setting type and printing, can bring out a fuller visual and tactile dimensions to your work. Participants will type set work, choose color and paper and then print a broadside edition of twenty. Class capacity is 10. Registration is through the Poetry Project website: here.
