Create your own beautiful piece of printed art at one of our half-day workshops. The workshop is a perfect introduction to the classic world of printing.
The (two student maximum) half-day course includes a brief outline of the history of letterpress. You then get hands-on by designing your print; you'll set your type from the large collection of wood and metal type available at the press. A proof is pulled to review your design, then after mixing the ink by hand you'll print your artwork on our Swiss cylinder proofing press.
Course duration is four hours and due to the intimacy of your experience, your finished limited edition print will be one worthy of framing.
Mid course we will break for coffee and pastries.
Please note the environment is a working print shop so please don’t wear anything too special and please wear covered shoes.
