Letterpress: Create at Lunch

One day’s not nearly enough time to learn the intricacies of letterpress, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had when you stick to basics and shoot from the hip — especially when you have an experienced letterpress instructor giving you help and inspiration. Whether you’re new to letterpress or know the lay of a type case like the back of your hand, you’ll enjoy playing with SVC’s collection of wood type and imagery, experimenting both on and off press with hand-inking and overprinting. And here’s another bonus: You can apply the tuition from this lunch workshop towards SVC’s 10-week evening Introduction to Letterpress class. So now you have one more reason to come learn these skills and more:

How to select the right typeface Printing with pre-carved linocut images Mixing inks to create the desired hue Best way to hand-ink a form The delightful effects of imprecise registration Operating a hand proofing press

Fred Hutch Research Study Exploring the Common Cold

Do you have a lot of colds and wonder why? Do you never get colds? If you are around kids and want to help us answer these questions, please join our study.

Help us understand why some people get sick from the common cold more than others. We are currently recruiting about 200 people to participate in our study. We hope that this study may provide information to help with designing a vaccine for Rhinovirus or for other viruses. Rhinoviruses are responsible for causing 30-50% of common colds.  Some people report getting a lot of colds each year while others report never getting sick.

This study will compare the immune response to the common cold (rhinovirus) between people who feel like they rarely have cold symptoms versus those who have them more often.  We hope that by closely following the body’s specific immune responses in someone who has exposure to the common cold, we can better understand which responses may be required for a successful vaccine against the common cold.
