June 11 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Printing Techniques and Hands-on Demonstration
Hands-on workshop: 10:00 am; 2:00pm
The Muskegon Heritage Museum will present a special exhibition about Intaglio and Letterpress Printing in the MHM print shop featuring etched copper plates, relief wood blocks, and glass plate negatives from its collection. Special demonstrations and hands-on workshops cover the techniques and tools used in intaglio and letterpress printing. These tools and techniques are just like those used by Edward Curtis in the early part of the 20th century when he created the stunning photogravures of The North American Indian. Workshop participants will get to use a 100 year old letterpress machine.
