another letterpress class

This was a full day class incorporating text, block, and multiple color registration on the Vandercook press. 

The print is collaborative, with each student carving their own blocks under instruction. Mine is the center block.

the first color. it's a blend roll
blocks inked up with the second color
there were 4 paper colors
discussing and trouble-shooting registration issues
the last one got printed upside-down. kind of neat effect.
not shown: print on  pumpkin colored paper
without the blend roll
my block.
i was naughty and didn't clean it off, but i'm not going to be printing it again, and it looks so nice with the blue
