Book online HERE
Choose any text you wish to print - it could be a quintessential quote, a punk poem or a lively lyric (though we recommend your creative inspirations to be no more than 12 words).
Our knowledgeable tutors will take you through the process, from composition (hand-setting type, spacing and locking-up) to printing (inking and pulling the press). The tutors will work with you to tailor the course to your abilities and interests. With small class sizes attendees will have ample opportunity for one-to-one guidance from our excellent gurus of print.
The course includes induction to the workshop, health and safety, explanation of the various processes involved and introduction to the presses.
All materials, including aprons, are provided but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting inky!
