Join us as we learn about broadside creation and printing, then tour Fresh Press at the U of I.

Supported by a grant from the Association of Print Scholars

Ben Blount, letterpress artist from Evanston, IL; Emmy Lingscheit, Assoc. Professor in Printmaking; and Guen Montgomery, Clinical Professor in Art & Design will co-create a broadside that will be printed in a live demo by the Noble Print Club. Attendees will then travel to Fresh Press Agri-Fiber Paper Lab where Eric Benson, Professor in Graphic Design will give a tour. 

All attendees can keep a copy of the broadside printed during the workshop, and paper from Fresh Press will be available for sale.
