About this Event

Participants learn a simple 32-page pamphlet format bound in its printed wrapper on the printing process on Eastfield’s original iron hand presses. Students set type, and take turns in the inking and printing of the presses. The workshop also examines the functioning, set up, adjustment, and operation of presses. The final day is spent on binding techniques. Attendees gain the skills needed to achieve high levels of printing quality using basic tools.

Stephen Sword of Ontario, Canada, is a printing historian and the owner of Stiff ’n’ sore press, which specializes in historic letterpress techniques. Greg Joly is a Historic Eastfield Foundation board member and the owner of Bull Thistle Press, Jamaica, Vt.
