Letterpress Courses

Letterpress (1st Sunday each month) 11-2.30pm £45. Booking Essential 

We run regular letterpress printing courses on the first Sunday each month from 11am until 2.30pm.   These are led by our volunteer professional printers and numbers are kept low (a maximum of 3) to ensure lots of attention.  The sessions are perfect for complete beginners or those wanting a refresher.  Each person is equipped with a typecase from which they set a given text, which they may then print from using our presses. The session includes an overview of the development of printing through to the present day and instruction on the equipment we have.  Our tutors with their many years of experience can answer individual questions.  The sessions are always well received.  On completion of the course, participants can – with prior booking – use the facility for their own projects subject to a small fee.
