Event description

Description

Letterpress printing for all comers. Numbers are restricted to 4 per session and scheduled on each first Friday of the summer months. From 9.30am - 5pm.

Although letterpress is a skilled craft, our workshops make it easy for newcomers to get a taste of the ‘dark art’ by using simple machines that enable a relatively quick and satisfying result.

Sessions begin with a short demonstration of hand setting and inking before we run through the basics of how each machine operates. You will then be free to design and print posters or cards of your choosing using the wide variety of wood and hot-metal type that we have available. You will learn how to set type accurately in a setting-stick, lock up a forme, mix ink and apply it to a press. And, most importantly, you will learn the joy of seeing your creation come to life once it’s taken from the grippers of the press.

Please note we provide tea and coffee but please bring a pack lunch (unless you're a fan of microwaved Ginsters, available at the nearby garage).

For group bookings contact Anna through the website contact form.
