Introduction to Letterpress workshop
On our one-day introduction to letterpress course, you will learn the basics of letterpress; set wood type, ink & print by hand. The letterpress course is split into morning & afternoon sessions.
We have 83 different wood types & 74 metal types, plus a wide selection of borders. We have a wide range of paper for you to use including Japanese, Chinese & GF Smith colorplan. Our wood type collection dates from 1840s - 1950s.
Morning session: print size SRA2 450mm X 640mm
The group will work together to design an SRA2 (450mm x 640mm) print as a group on our Large Farley Proofing Press (dated 1940).
Afternoon session: print size SRA3 320mm x 450mm
Each member will produce their own print (320mm x 450mm) using the Stephenson Blake proofing press.
By the end of the day, each member will have produced 2 prints to take home with them.
We have guest aprons but please don't wear anything to smart for the workshop.
We look forward to working with you!
