Service Description

This workshop aims to provide an introduction to letterpress; starting with the basics of relief printing, inks, paper stocks and the history of letterpress, we then work with the group on a small project that involves several aspects of typesetting and layout design. Once the compositions are complete, we go on to demonstrate and explain how to use one of our Adana 8x5 or 5x3 tabletop platen presses, which the group will then use to produce a small run of printed ephemera to take away at the end of the session. These workshops are aimed primarily at people with an interest in letterpress but not necessarily much (or any) prior experience in print or graphic design. We want to provide the group with a taster and introduction to the techniques and processes involved in letterpress and the kind of effects that can be achieved. All materials are provided. The workshops take place at Estate Of The Arts in Bedminster and is run by Theo Wang from Print and Ephemera.
