I’m back in the print studio! Last night was my first Lovin’ Letterpress II class at the Printing & Book Arts Center (PABA) at the Genesee Center for the Arts. I am thrilled to share that I am able to take this class right now because I was awarded a scholarship from Ladies of Letterpress!
Since it’s been nearly two years since I took Lovin’ Letterpress I (doesn’t feel like two years!) my goal for last night was to simply re-familiarize myself with PABA. I was surprised when I walked through the door and saw that PABA moved some things around! The place looks great. There is a “new” (to me) reception area and mini-gallery to showcase student work and give project samples. A majority of the type cases are now in the basement which allows for more room in the main space. PABA looks great! Such a nice space to work in.
After I spent a good hour looking around I got to work. Going into class I knew I wanted to make a batch of thank you cards for my Indiegogo campaign funders. I also knew I wanted to attempt to print 2-color since I have only ever done 1-color. Last night I printed the “THANK” and “www.megancharland.com” in black ink. Next week I’ll be printing the second color which I haven’t decided on yet. At first I wanted to use a hot pink for “YOU”, but I’m not sure. I’ll post photos of the final cards next week!
