The Rudiments of Letterpress

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Elizabeth Willow & David Armes

About the course:

This beginners course introduces you to the basics of type, (using both metal type and our lovely, recently acquired wood type), the different
presses at Hot Bed Press, (Albion, Columbian, Adana 8×5 and galley proofing press) and the options available with each combination. You will gain a basic understanding of letterpress terminology, typesetting, design and ink handling, but the emphasis will be on trying out different styles of press to leave you enthused about your next steps with each. You will finish with a collection of unique, hand-printed postcards and small posters.
