Spring Workshops At AS220
Check out the spring workshops on the newly-released AS220 Industries schedule: paper-making, silkscreen, etching, laser and vinyl cutting, darkroom, video editing, synth-making! (List of workshops here.)
Or take “Introduction to Offset Printing” with the master, Jacque Bidon (starts May 2nd).
Colorful ‘zines, single-page artists’ books, posters, and flyers can all be created in large quantities using the Printshop’s Offset Press. The first class will be spent in the Media Arts Lab using the Adobe Creative Suite to Turn Your Ideas into formatted files ready for the press.
You will learn how to run the ABDick 9850 Offset Press – a commercial press capable of creating Hundreds of prints in a matter of minutes. Finishing Processes Including will be covered using our pneumatic folding machine, using our saddle stitch stapler, and trimming on the guillotine.
