Generously supported by the Sobell Foundation we are pleased to invite you and your children to experience a unique 'one-off' event at St Bride Foundation. 

Listen to stories of strange and magical creatures then become a printer's devil* for a day! You'll work as a family to make a small book of one of the stories - writing, illustrating and printing it, using traditional methods. No computers will be involved! You'll print part of it on a Victorian printing press, guided by a St Bride Foundation printer. All materials and techniques used are very safe, simple and lots of fun. Please remember to wear old clothes, (see Printer's Devils below).

Storyteller and bookbinder: Linda Cotterill

Printer: Helen Ingham

* Printer's apprentices would inevitably have parts of their skin stained black by the ink used in printing. As black was associated with the 'black arts', the apprentices came to be called devils and so printer's devils.

This is a completely new type of event to be held at the Foundation and aims to introduce a wider audience to printing, the history of printing and all the other fascinating aspect of the Foundation.
