Letterpress w/e workshop

Letterpress is a fascinating area of print with many possibilities. As part of the course, you will explore traditional & experimental ways of using wooden & metal type on three types of press: a Vandercook-type proofing press, an Albion press & an Adana table top press.

You will find out about how inks and paper impact on the quality of printing
You can print cards, postcards, posters & prints. You can letterpress print on paper, textile (100% cotton best) and onto any pre-existing prints or drawings, so feel free to bring anything you might like to try printing with/on.
