Printmakers have the opportunity to create a unique print of their
devising, whilst learning the basics of letterpress, in an absorbing and
fun-filled session at Creartii.
Enjoy the opportunity of a small group where Chris will teach the basics of traditional letterpress
printing; after some basic prep in general principles and typography,
participants learn how to hand-set type on a composing stick, transfer
to a chase and lock it up for printing. From there guests will learn how
to ink up, operate and clean an Adana 8×5 tabletop press, the most
popular of ‘starter’ presses.
Guests are encouraged to come prepared with an idea of what they would
like to print. We recommend approx. 150 words. Smallprint’s mobile
library of typography, letterpress and print books are on hand to inspire!
