About the course:

Spend a delightful 4 days exploring moveable type. You will learn to understand the lay of the type case, set type and lock up your text to print on our lovely Adana presses, each printed card showing the individual character and style of letterpress.

You will go on to learn to balance image and text and to be creative with wonderful ornaments and image blocks, and to be adventurous with larger wooden type on the hand iron and galley presses.

Come away with an array of printed texts and images and a love of letterpress. Suitable for beginners to refreshers.
