German Students Create Art at Print Workshop

Letterpress Printworkshop at Baker Library


On February 17th the German Club organized a print workshop for its members at the Book Arts Workshop.

Sarah Smith introduced the art of making prints and showed participants many different options to be creative at the Book Arts Workshop. The evening’s project was a collaborative one. Everyone was able to set the type for a German quote, sentence or phrase. After that all the different types were brought together to make one print with different sections.

In the end everyone was able to use the printing machine once to make their own print, which they could take home. It was a very interesting evening. The German Club hopes to organize a similar event with the Book Arts Workshop in spring.
