New North Press artisan letterpress print & design studio believe that the passing on of knowledge is key to letterpress’ survival and so aim to teach regular classes to share the tools and skills with anyone interested in learning.
Their public classes offer a hands-on introduction to the craft of letterpress. Participants experience the entire process from composition (hand-setting, spacing and locking up type) to printing (inking and pulling the press). Access to a substantial library of wood and metal type is open and everyone leaves with a printed example of their work.
They also run letterpress classes by appointment. Whether you are a design team looking to broaden your knowledge of typography or a group of friends interested in learning something new, they can arrange a private letterpress workshop for you with tailored printed outcomes.
