Broadside or Broadsheet?

Commonly to be broadsided is to be the target of a strongly worded critical attack. Historically, it is a nearly simultaneous firing of all the guns from one side of a warship targeting the enemy.

A Broadsheet is the largest size of a newspaper format. Meaning  that you are getting the most news possible.
This printing workshop will explore the wonders of letterpress by combining printed letterforms and graphic images. Printing techniques will be the focus as well as designing for large sheets that can be used as posters or broadsheets or broadsides. Politics aside or not, this will be a creative class or writers and artists in large format!

Lunch each day is included. Lodging is available on campus $75/night, private room & bath.
