Description

Spend a day in my purpose built print studio in Brampton, Suffolk, learning the basics of letterpress composition and printing. Before lunch we will run through the stages of composing type and preparing a simple example ready for printing on my Adana printing press. After lunch you are free to compose and print your own design for a greetings card or poster using the range of fonts and image blocks in my collection. No previous knowledge required. There can be a maximum of 2 people on the day.

What's included in the price?

All materials will be supplied to produce up to 6 copies of your final print. If you require more copies a small charge will be made for the extra materials used. A simple lunch of homemade soup and bread will be provided plus refreshments during the day. If you have any special dietary requirements please let me know in advance.

Maker


Mitchell-Finch is the partnership of two graphic designers who met at Norwich School of Art in the 1970’s. Now based in a quiet corner of Suffolk, our work has taken two distinct paths, Jane creates unique textile brooches & artworks with free-machine embroidery, Edwin hand prints posters, cards and stationery using vintage letterpress type and printing presses. We’re keen to share our skills, and now offer workshops in both creative embroidery and letterpress printing.
