An introduction to hand-setting with lead type and letterpress printing in the traditional way. Nick Hand will lead you through the process, showing you the basics and how to print on 8×5 Adana presses. You’ll learn the basics of composing type by hand, learn how to use the presses, and will be able to produce coasters, bookmarks or postcards by the end of the workshop. All equipment will be provided as well as aprons, though you may still get a little messy. You’ll get to take your completed prints home with you. Lunch is not provided although you are able to purchase food in the cafe on-site, or bring your own.
