Learn the basics of platen press operation on the BARN’s table-top “Pilot” press.

The class begins with a guided tour of the 5” x 7” press identifying its working parts: ink plate, chase, ink rollers, platen, packing, lever handle, etc. Through the process of preparing a “BARN Wisdom” card, students will learn basic clam-shell printing press techniques including lock-up, make-ready, and impression.

Carl Youngmann began setting type, letter by letter, in 1960; Ellie Mathews combines her experience as a designer with her willingness to explore the techniques of relief printing. Their own Chandler & Price Pilot has been useful for small print pieces in their Port Townsend studio. The North Press.

Please note: This is an intermediate class; students are expected to have completed the Letterpress Boot Camp class or to have had previous letterpress printing experience.

There will be a $5 materials fee in addition to the course fee when you register for this class.

Please register AND pay early; you are not confirmed for the class until you have completed payment.
