The Joker’s Wild: Unpredictable Letterpress

September 9 & 10, Friday & Saturday, 9:00-5:00
Instructor: Amos Kennedy
Location: Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, 4th floor, University of Utah, Salt Lake City
Workshop fee: $160; materials fee: $30

Ante up for this two-day printing adventure with Amos Kennedy, the wild card of letterpress. Participants go all in, using layers of ink, bold graphic elements, wood type, and ingenuity to create unique broadsides. Don’t be intimidated by fine press printing—break away from letterpress’s staid side. Leave the poker face at home, and bring ideas, spontaneity, and style to discover what’s up the dealer's sleeve. No bluffing: for practiced pressmen and nervous novitiates alike, this workshop is an ace-in-the-hole.

Amos Kennedy works in a studio chock-full of presses and wood type in the small town of Gordo, Alabama and teaches extensively around the country and the world, including numerous workshops in Italy. His work is uniquely affordable and widely collected.
