This course is an introduction to printing on the Vandercook, an excellent machine for creating large editions of great-looking relief prints. With its automatic inking and easy registration, we will use the letterpress and reductive carving techniques to print a two-color image from a single linoleum block.

Please Note: Students are responsible for purchasing paper. All other supplies will be provided by EFA RBPMW.
