Design and print using our hundreds of wooden and metal fonts

About this event

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

The following measures are in place to make teaching classes safe for everyone:

• Class capacity has been reduced by half, from 8 to 4 people, to allow for social distancing.

• The class leader has been fully vaccinated

• We will be keeping up with the latest Government advice on face coverings

• Hand sanitiser will be provided

• 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.

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.
