Asheville BookWorks is a community resource for print and book arts located in West Asheville on Haywood Road. Through classes, exhibits, lectures, and annual events like BookOpolis and the Edible Book Festival, BookWorks caters to those interested in handmade books, papermaking, printmaking, and letterpress.
Currently some impressive workshops in papermaking, printing techniques, and book binding are being offered at the BookWorks facilities.
An artist whose work I am fond of, Jessica C. White, (pictured above) will be teaching the following letterpress print workshops:
The Printed Book Workshop
August 11, 18, 25
September 1, 8, 15
The class will integrate text, image, and the book structure into one project while increasing participants’ familiarity and experience with letterpress printing.
Introduction to Letterpress Printing Workshop
This three-day class will explore the basics of letterpress printing and hand typesetting, including type composition, mixing ink, press set-up, and printing on the Vandercook Proof Press.
