Event Details

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 eight 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.

Lunch and all materials are provided, but please wear old clothes or bring an apron.

New North Press – 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
