An introduction to hand-setting with wood type and letterpress printing in the traditional way. Nick Hand and Ellen Bills will lead you through the process, showing you the basics and how to print on two beautiful proofing presses. You’ll learn the basics of composing type by hand, learn how to use the proofing presses, and will be able to produce a poster sized print 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.
