||e believe that the passing on of knowledge is key to letterpress' survival.
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.
Classes run over either one or two days and cater for
groups of up to eight. A basic knowledge of graphic design or interest in typography helps, but is not essential.
