Create a unique print and learn the basics of letterpress in a fun-filled afternoon at Smallprint HQ!
The session is ideal for people of all letterpress abilities who are interested in the creative aspect of letterpress.
On the Day
Chris will teach a small group the basics of traditional letterpress printing. After some basic prep in general principles and typography (if you’re unfamiliar), you’ll learn how to hand-set type on a composing stick, transfer it to a chase and lock it up for printing. From there you’ll learn how to ink up, operate and clean an Adana 8×5 tabletop press, the most popular of ‘starter’ presses.
