Letterpress Christmas Cards
[ Workshop )
Kick start your festive season with this one-day Letterpress Printing workshop.
During this hands-on session, you will learn about the history of letterpress, and get inky using a selection of vintage wood type, try printing with antique illustration blocks and produce your final prints on fully restored vintage Adana printing presses. By the end of the workshop you will have been industrious and created a selection of your very own custom Letterpress Christmas cards to send to your loved ones.
12 – 4pm, in the Gallery’s studio.
