Letterpress Workshop - Decorative Typographic Printing - Beginner - 2 Day - One to One

X

Description

Explore the decorative collections of traditional wooden and metal type. Set metal type using a composing stick to get to grips with type setting techniques on a small scale. Experiment with larger scale wooden letters to create a statement piece and combine metal type too. Work in traditional tones or play with colour and foil. Print a message, a greetings card, a poster or a decorative print. You can even design your own style letter blocks to have lasered and take home with you. With two days to play you could even do a print run for a special occasion or to kick start a small business. This workshop is a guaranteed one to one session so that I can tailor the workshop to your interests and needs as an individual. You can achieve so much this way. Develop skills to start a new business, take up a new hobby or craft for the joy of it … I can ensure the day progresses the way you want it to. A one-night self-catering stay is available for free with this booking in our onsite retro caravan (subject to availability). Please enquire. All courses, workshops and kits come with free support afterwards. Email me or arrange a video call. I love to see what my students and fellow crafters are up to and really enjoy answering questions or helping if I can. So any booking isn’t just for the day it’s the start of a crafting friendship! I do my very best to keep all my listings up to date with availability. Unfortunately, at busy periods there can be a delay so if there is a specific date you need, please feel free to check before booking to avoid disappointment.

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
