The Letterpress Collective will also bring a selection of beautiful wood types and will show you the process of locking lead and wood type into a chase or onto the flatbed cylinder presses.

On these larger presses, you will be able to print poster-sized text-based images such as a favourite lyric, a line of poetry or something of your own. We’ll have some decorative borders and some vintage wood and metal etched illustrations to play with.

This 600-year-old craft course requires no previous experience, just an enthusiasm to learn!

By the end of the workshop you will:

Learn how to use a tabletop press
How to mix ink
How to register a two-colour print
Leave with an armful of your creations
