Poetry, Meet Art: Letterpress Broadsides at May Day Studio

Mary_broadside-1500

“How to Grow a Sonnet” by Mary Elder Jacobsen; print created at May Day Studios

You’ll need to preregister for this fantastic day of hands-on art (and lunch) at the May Day Studio, on April 30, from 10:30 am to 4 pm – get in touch!

Broadsides are, in today’s parlance, posters. Incorporate meaningful texts (and perhaps a bit of decoration) and watch the words take on new meaning and new life. In this workshop, we’ll use handset type and decorative elements to create large-format prints of poems that inspire us.

Cost is $110, and includes 100% cotton paper for 5 11 x 17 prints, plus a sandwich lunch.

Please contact May Day, at maydaystudio@gmail.com or 802-229-0639, to preregister.
