Event description

Description

This workshop is simply about slowing down, stepping back and taking stock. It’s a day of peace and quiet; a respite from the ‘age of distraction’. Join us at the .918 press for a slow day of setting type and printing, in the company of material language, where we will learn the basic principles of typography and letterpress typesetting, and make some prints. No phones, no internet, and (I promise), no ‘relaxation’ music. Just a bit of peace and quiet, with only the sounds of the press softly hissing, metal and wood clinking in the background, and the kettle being switched on. There will be no more than 5 people per workshop, plus myself and an assistant. We will set type slowly, and print a shared poster/broadside/'other', which you will take away in an edition of 5. Come with ideas on what ‘slowness’ and 'stepping back’ mean to you, and if possible (but not essential), some words which you would like to work with (just a few sentences).

No prior experience required. Lunch, tea and coffee, included. During this workshop, we would ask that you do not use phones or internet while in the studio, but are free to use them outside the building.

All materials are included (paper/ink), and at the end of each workshop, a complementary package of information about printing will be provided.
