Great printshop master instructor! Great time for a trip to the midwest.
 
Dear Letterpress and Letterform Friends

I’m happy to present our 2015 course offerings, including Letterpress Master Classes, and the new "Emptiness is a Design Pattern" series of 'negative-space' studies...

These include 
•Windmill Master Class, with a focus on the Heidelberg Windmill 10x15, including perfect impression, registration, paper transport, die-cutting, etc.
http://fraterdeus.com/letterpress-master-class

•Experimental Letterpress with Woodtype, which focusses on the flatbed Vandercook (ours is a 219 with a 19"x26” bed) and why and when to print on dampened stock.
http://www.fraterdeus.com/letterpress-on-dampened-paper-how-john-baskerville-squeezed-the-life-out-of-printing-and-what-we-can-do-to-bring-it-back 

•Introduction to Letterpress (Dubuque)
This course is eight hours over two days. Depending on interest, we can arrange for this class on short notice.

Any of these topics can be also covered in private courses, whether in our SlowPrint Letterpress Studio in Dubuque, or at your press. 

We already have two confirmed private tutorials coming this spring and early summer (including one printer coming all the way from Australia!), and will be continuing to reserve dates now through the rest of 2015 and 2016. 

I have two to three openings in the Windmill Master Class May 19-21
This class is already booked as a private session, but we have agreed to open it to up to two more students, which will bring the cost down to $1150 per person, including shop fees and materials.

I also have a four-day intensive private session covering a full range of letterpress topics planned for the week following Type on the Cob, the (amazing) Ladies of Letterpress conference (June 11-13) in Mt Pleasant, Iowa. 

It may also possible to join us these four days, pending further arrangements with our private student. We'll probably run from 16-19 June, final dates still to be determined.

I'll also be teaching at Type on the Cob! Hope to see you there!

N E W  S E R I E S - “Emptiness is a Design Pattern”

Learning to perceive Negative Space as an Incubator for Creativity 

I’m also happy to announce my new series “Emptiness is a Design Pattern”, which explores principles of creative development through calligraphic and drawing exercises complementing contemporary neuroscience and Zen meditation. Please see 

http://empt.yt/drawing-without-lines

We use the drawing of letterforms and abstract marks with pencils, markers, and the east-asian brush as a exercise in perception of negative space and non-obvious pattern relationships. 

The principles behind this series have been inspired by the groundbreaking work of Betty Edward's "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" and "Drawing on the Artist Within", as well as the teaching of Welsh master calligrapher and lettering designer Ieuan Rees, MDesRCA; Zen Shodo master Kazuaki Tanahashi; and my own practice.

Outcomes can be executed in numerous ways, including as eraser-carved rubber stamps, cut with a scalpel to experience the physical meaning of negative space. However, the lasting benefits are an increased awareness of one's own 'boundless' inner-space and an introduction to methods of accessing the well of creativity within.

----

Any of these workshops can be adapted for institutional seminars, university or corporate retreat settings. Please share with your networks! 

Please use the tags #emptiness_is_a_design_pattern or #letterpress-master-class

I'm happy to work with sincere and committed students, offering various apprenticeships or scholarships, but note that these still require payment for the seminar of at least 50-75% of the tuition.

----

I look forward to hearing from you!

With thanks 

Peter

Stopped by on our river walk from Race Street Pier to Penn's Landing and were so pleased to find a friendly place with inside and outside tables. Had a coffee and grabbed a banana for the walk. Super service friendly folks. Clean and sparkly. Yay a place on the waterfront.
