Spend three days experimenting with collage, text , stencils and drawn work to create your own zines, pamphlet books and posters. Using Photo plate lithography and monotype techniques combine drawn and photographic imagery with text. Print small editions and unique copies using, amongst others, LPW’s new offset lithography press. During this intensive three day course purposeful play, collaboration and exchange will be encouraged as you experiment and translate your ideas into images. We will look at examples print as a tool for communication, print as protest and consider the relationship between narrative and the book form.
