About the course:

Explore the delights of book arts and letterpress printing, using traditional and contemporary processes to create exciting and beautiful artists’ books.

You will spend one day setting both metal and wood type, then print using our lovely presses, including table-top Adana presses and Albion hand presses. The next day you will be able to transform your prints into simple books, using folding, cutting and stitching techniques, and look at the relationship between content and structure.
Suitable for those new to letterpress and book arts, for printers wishing to add another dimension to their work, for book artists exploring content, and for everyone who loves words, ink and paper.

Cost: £130.00 / £110.00 members
