Event description

Description

Suitable for complete beginners.

Join us for practical, hands-on workshops led by experts at the London Centre for Book Arts.

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 stationery, foil blocking produces a striking finish that is impossible to achieve using other printing techniques.

Participants will 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
The correct and safe use of the press.

On completion of this class, participants will be able work independently on the foil blocking presses by becoming a studio member or purchasing a Studio Pass. Find out more.

All materials and tools provided, but participants are welcome to bring along your own papers and other materials to test with.
