This new class has been established to serve as a gateway to a new collection of rare wood type that The Arm has recently acquired. Only people who have prior experience printing in our studio and have also taken this class will have access to this type collection.
This four hour class will teach the participants to safely handle and print from fragile antique wood type. We will cover some tips and tricks to make old wood type print well and also cover some period-correct and also unconventional techniques that can be used to get interesting effects from it. After completion of this four hour class you will be given a card allowing you to continue to use this rare wood type with any press booking at The Arm.
Our hope is that this class will prove to be popular. Our intention is to run it as often as we can fill it and to use the proceeds from the class to purchase additional fonts of rare wood type exclusively for the use of those who’ve taken our Wood Type Intensive.
