Event description

Description

The [26] workshops will introduce the basics of typography and letterpress printing, over the course of 2 days, at a slow pace (Saturday and Sunday, 10-5 each day). You will set both metal and wood type, drawn from the .918 press collection of over 450 cases of type, and you will design and print an individual, limited edition A2-sized print (10 copies), on a Vandercook Universal 1 Precision Proofing press, using Crane’s Lettra* No more than 5 participants will be accepted on each workshop, allowing for an intensive and intimate experience, with expert guidance provided throughout. The emphasis will be on learning about the beauty and nuances of typography through letterpress, including how to choose typefaces, and how to express meaning through typeface choice, scale, weight, position etc.

A complementary package of information about typography and letterpress printing will be given to each participant, at the end of the second day. Each day starts at 10.00am and ends at 5.00pm

For questions, contact: sheena.calvert@btinternet.com

Tea/coffee and lunch are provided. No previous experience is necessary to join this workshop.

* Crane’s Lettra is a luxurious 100% acid-free cotton paper, produced especially for letterpress printing, and so retaining the impression. We will use 120gsm stock, in either Pearl White, or Fluorescent White. Please note that because the Vandercook Universal 1 is an American press, the final printed size will be slightly narrower than a full A2 sheet.
