Abstract Tactics for Letterpress

Abstract Tactics for Letterpress

BAG Workshop

June 24, 2017 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Letterpress artist David Wolske teaches Abstract Tactics for Letterpress. Learn techniques and strategies to create an almost infinite variety of dynamic abstract compositions from just a handful of type and a few cans of ink. Using a variety of letterpress printing methods and tools we will investigate the vast potential hidden within fonts, borders, and dingbats to make unique nonrepresentational art.

David Wolske received a BA in Studio Art from Marian University and an MFA in Graphic Design from Indiana University Bloomington. His work is exhibited and collected around the world and he teaches typography, graphic design, letterpress printing, and book arts classes and workshops across the United States. In 2016, David was the first Visiting Artist at Hatch Show Print, Nashville, TN. David’s methodologies combine the traditions of letterpress and fine art printmaking with digital tools and design thinking into a unique cross-disciplinary workflow.
