Students from the TLE Christian Academy learn about printmaking


High School and Middle School students started a two day introductory workshop on printmaking and letterpress at the Red Onion Press this week.  The classes include a background to the history of letterpress, going back to Gutenberg and a demonstration of printing terms and concepts using movable type and tools.  Students also got a chance to view the Red Onion's  100 year old presses in operation.  Next week during the second half of the workshop, each student will trace a drawing and prepare a plate that he or she will print on the shop's flatbed press.  Contact the Red Onion Press if your school or group would like to schedule a printmaking workshop.
