My letterpress workshops are run regularly from my garden studio in Stoneleigh, Surrey. They have a max of two attendees at a time to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and an Adana 8x5 printing press all to yourself!
This four hour session is ideal for getting to grips with the printing basics, and it's ample time to create your own small letterpress collection.
You will be shown how to use a traditional composing stick to typeset, the process of makeready and even how to mix your own unique ink colour if you wish.
I have a plethora of type, printing blocks, recycled papers and vegetable based inks to choose from (the neons and metallics have been very popular!), and you'll be able to print your own:
- Greeting cards
- Gift tags
- Greyboard business cards
