Design and print using our hundreds of wooden and metal fonts

About this event

*Please read our Covid-19 measures below

Our classes offer a hands-on introduction to letterpress and are an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to acquire a practical knowledge of this craft at a beginners level.

Participants experience the entire process, from composition (hand-setting, spacing and locking-up type) to printing (inking and pulling the press). Access to our library of over 700 wood and metal fonts is open and everyone leaves with a printed example of their work.

Group size is maximum of four and we begin with a collaborative outcome, with each person setting their contribution and then printing the finished form. Once this is complete, individuals are free to produce their own work.

All materials are provided but please wear old clothes or bring an apron.

Covid-19 measures

We are monitoring the latest advice and have made the following changes:

• Capacity of classes has been reduced from 8 to 4 people.

• The class leader has been fully vaccinated.

• Face masks are currently recommended in all indoor public spaces. While we leave this to your own discretion we will be keeping up with the latest Government advice.

• Hand sanitiser will be provided on your entrance to the building and throughout the day

• We ask that you provide your own lunch and will provide a distanced seating arrangement. You are also welcome to use our kitchen area with fridge and kettle.

• Cancellations – If you, or anyone you have been in contact with, is feeling unwell we ask you not to attend the class. We will try to transfer your ticket to a future date where possible. All attendees' contact information will be collected to provide for the track and trace scheme if necessary.

Finally, please be aware that our workshop is a confined space and, while we are taking these precautions, participants are likely to be in close proximity to one and other, handling objects and touching shared surfaces.

Organiser New North Press – letterpress

Organiser of Introduction to letterpress

New North Press is an artisan letterpress print studio in east London. Since establishing in 1986 we have amassed a substantial library of type, both wooden and metal, which we set by hand and print on Albion presses. We aim to run classes on a monthly basis and further dates will be added closer to the time so please check back. We also cater for corporate bookings outside our public dates but please contact us seprately to arrange this.

 

You’ll find yourself at the end with ink on your hands and a new found respect for this traditional and compelling practice – Crafts Council
