Our friends at Purgatory Pie Press, Esther K. Smith and Dikko Faust, will be in Portland and Seattle next week conducting two workshops: Instant Art Books and Experimental Letterpress Printing. The four day workshops in Portland at the Pacific Northwest College of Art begin on August 9th and offer a rare opportunity to learn from these masters.
Esther's class demonstrates some easy basics of creative bookbinding, exploring simple stitched and folded bookbinding from Eastern and Early Western traditions. Dikko's workshop explores letterpress printing in ways that you never thought possible. These workshops are guaranteed to please.
