Typography Print sessions are great for learning the basics of composing type and realising a short type-based project. Explore the studio’s collection of type to create a typographic print and experiment with inks and layout before getting stuck into the typesetting and composition with our workshop leader. Who is on hand throughout to advise on layout and help you achieve the perfect print. Previous workshop projects have included business cards, change of address cards, bookplates and poems. Get in touch to organise a time and date. If it’s the process rather than the outcome you’re interested in, then check out our Introduction to Letterpress workshops. Adana workshops are also available if you are the proud owner of an Adana and want someone to help you. Please note that we require a minimum 10 days notice from booking for the date of the workshop.
