Preparation for Letterpress Workshop

Next weekend I'll be conducting a letterpress workshop at Judson University for high school students on Portfolio Day. I've been trying to think of a good workshop project that can be done in less than an hour. Over this past weekend I met incredible letterpress designers from Lead Graffiti in Newark, DE. They told me about a workshop style they use at their studio. We'll be give it a try. See more information about how it operates here at their studio. Here are some of my experiments in preparation. If you are a high school student interest in Judson University as an art or design major, contact me at anna.filbert@judsonu.edu.
