Have you recently been inspired by the posters, banners and placards at recent marches and protests?
Would you like to create your own eye-catching piece of printed ephemera?
At this workshop I will show you how to create your own A3 poster using traditional letterpress printing.
You will have access to a selection of vintage wooden type and picture blocks to create your statement piece using a printing press. During the session we will chat about the history of letterpress and it's terminology. You will leave with some single colour prints (maximum of 5) on your choice of coloured papers or card.
Please bring with you some creative reference material - a short quote or saying. (Maximum of ten words)
All materials and equipment are provided.
