Januarary and February are a little hot and sweaty in the studio, but workshop dates in March and April are good to go!
In this ‘Introduction to letterpress’ workshop you will make use of our table top presses and proofing press. This will be an immersive studio class where you will work with vintage wood type, metal type, and our collection of antique image blocks.
Davina will be your instructor and is excited to share her years of letterpress printing knowledge and welcomes you into her letterpress studio space. You do not need any experience to take this class. Space is limited, so sign up early and join her to create something truly unique!
Past attendees say:
"The workshop instantly felt like a group of friends gathered for some creative fun, despite most of us being complete strangers. The format of the workshop was informative without being stuffy and formal, and it was a perfect introduction to the world of letterpress printing and a very enjoyable afternoon."
"So much to enjoy; learning about printer history, how to set up letterpress, inks and machines AND walk away with your own old school stationery creation. All in a relaxed environment with snacks! Thanks Davina."
"Loved this course! Davina was fantastic & coming away with my own homemade bespoke cards was a real treat. You definitely need to do this course!" "Very knowledgeable and approachable workshop facilitator. Loved the set up of the studio, with access to plenty of resources. Highly recommend!"
WHAT WILL YOU CREATE? A three (3) hour workshop covering hand composing with vintage type, will see you walk away with a personalised stationery set as well as a one of a kind print off our proofing press. Some images from our past workshops are below.
