Description

USA to AUS - A Letterpress Workshop with Eric Woods of The Firecracker Press

Since 2002 The Firecracker Press has been designing and printing posters, party invites, and packaging, for international clients, from its studio in St. Louis, Missouri USA. Eric Woods, owner of The Firecracker Press, will show work, talk tales of creation and share secrets about starting (and running) a design and letterpress shop day to day.

In this day and a half workshop participants will learn how to design and print a poster, and discover new ways to build color using woodcuts, type, and non-traditional materials. Participants will be introduced to a number of techniques used at The Firecracker Press.

The workshop will be a very hands on process with participants utalising material from the archive at The Bacon Factory. Participants will have the opportunity to create their own wood block along with incorporating both wood and metal types from The Bacon Factory collection.

All workshop materials will be supplied along with lunch and coffee for both days along with a few beers once the workshop is concluded.

Eric Woods, Founder The Firecracker Press, St. Louis, Missouri USA

Eric Woods, owner and founder of Firecracker Press, bought his first printing press in Mexico, Mo. It weighed 2,000 pounds and could be moved only with the help of forklifts. Seventeen years later, Woods has more presses than one man needs in his graphic design and letterpress studio on Cherokee Street St. Louis, Missouri USA, where he and two other employees design and print everything from wedding invitations to concert posters for the Billiken Club using artisan techniques.
