Illuminated Wood Type Workshop at Hamilton on July 7

Create your own ornamented letterforms using brayers, stencils and resist techniques. Participants in this workshop will begin with wood type letters of their choosing to form the base of decorated capitals. Taught by the museum’s artistic director Bill Moran, you’ll learn how to use masking techniques, pressure printing and paper texture as a way to embellish inside and outside your letterform. This workshop is made possible through the generous support of Hoefler & Co.

For inspiration we’ll view the Renaissance Capital exhibit that will be featured in Hamilton’s gallery. After the class stick around for the opening reception of the show from 5-7 pm.

The cost is $125 per person with the museum providing materials and tools. Space is limited, so sign up early. ***Important note: Register for this workshop on or before June 1, 2018 and receive a reduced rate. It will only be $100 per person.***
