Create your own beautiful piece of printed art at one of our half-day workshops. The letterpress workshop is a wonderful introduction to the classic world of printing.


The (two student maximum) half-day course includes a brief outline of the history of the printing process. You get hands-on by designing your own poster and setting your own type from the large collection of wood and metal type. You'll mix the ink by hand and print your poster on our antique Swiss FAG Standard 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. 

Refreshments and aprons will be supplied. Please note the environment is a working print shop so please don’t wear anything too special.
