Event Details

Foil Blocking Induction  

Tuesday 12 March, 7 – 9pm

Foil blocking is a unique process of applying metallic or 'foil' effect on the printing surface using a technique similar to letterpress. Used most commonly on book covers and special invitations, foil blocking produces a striking finish that is impossible to achieve using other printing techniques.

Come and learn how to prepare artwork for making into plates, how to set up and register your work in the press, how to get the best results from a wide variety of substrates, and the correct and safe use of the press. On completion of this class, participants will be authorised to rent press time on the blocking presses at the Centre.
