Letterpress Bookplate Workshop
Thu 15 June 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Celebrating books with Derby Book Festival!
Have fun creating your own bookplates in this evening session at our studio.
Set a small piece of text combined with ornaments from our collection to create your very own bookplates. During the session, you will get to grips with the traditional technique of letterpress using an Adana tabletop press and metal type.
You will be guided in composition techniques by our printer Chris, and print the final design onto high quality paper. Expect to take up to 15-25 bookplates away with you.
Cancellation policy: Please let us know as soon as possible if you can't attend the workshop. Bookings cannot be cancelled or postponed within 48 hours of the workshop starting.
