Event description

Description

Join us at the print studio of the London Centre for Book Arts to Create your own letterpress poster using the Centre's collection of wood and metal type as well as new custom made laser cut ornaments.

Starting with a look through some examples of letterpress printed posters, workshop participants will then have an introduction to the composing room, and will be introduced to the Vandercook, FAG and Stephenson Blake presses. Participants will learn hand typesetting, how to lock up your work into a forme, how to set up the press, and a variety of different traditional and contemporary inking and compositional techniques available to poster artists.

All tools and materials provided. Come prepared with a few ideas or phrases/slogans for a poster design.
Open to all abilities, but ideally suited for those who have already taken Introduction to Letterpress Printing 1.
