Let's Letterpress!

A 3 hour short course exploring printing with vintage wooden type.

Service Description

This 3 hour short course is an opportunity to play with our collection of vintage wooden type and produce your own posters, slogans or patterns. Letterpress was formerly used to produce all forms of publications and historically played a fundamental role in communicating, informing and entertaining a wider audience. With the invention of computers the industry rapidly declined, however in recent years the 'craft' of letterpress has seen a revival in graphic design and fine arts. During this session you will be shown how to set type and create different arrangements before inking and printing using our proofing press. This process is called 'hot pressing' which involves printing with type while it is still loose. If you have any questions, check out our FAQ page or contact us via norwichprintmakers@gmail.com or via the Contact Us page!
