Our workshops offer a hands-on introduction to the craft of letterpress. Participants experience the entire process from composition (hand-setting, spacing and locking up type) to printing (inking and pulling the press). Access to our substantial library of wood and metal types is open and everyone leaves with a printed example of their work.
Group size is maximum of eight and we begin with a collaborative outcome, with each person setting their contribution and then printing the finished form. Once this is complete, individuals are free to produce their own work.
