Training as a letterpress printer used to take a five year apprenticeship. But you can experience a day learning the craft of hand typesetting and letterpress printing. Bring your favourite poem, saying or song lyrics and take away your own unique hand printed version. The day starts with a a short introduction to letterpress printing.

I will teach you the basics of accurate hand-setting lead type, locking up in a ‘chase’, ink mixing and preparing to print. All materials are provided and lunch and refreshments are included.

After an enjoyable day see your ideas come to life but be careful you don’t get hooked!
