Bookbinding
We offer two workshops in bookbinding. Choose between Japanese Stab Binding (Beginners Bookbinding) and Coptic Binding, two traditional stitch methods for binding pages using a decorative stitch.

Taster Sessions
Choose Print a Poster for a short, fun session with great results.

Regular
Select Create a Letterpress Print for a three or four hour session dedicated to the art of typesetting and print. These are timetabled at least once a month; on a Thursday evening and a Saturday afternoon.

Tailored / Bespoke Maybe you can’t see a suitable date in our regular diary or perhaps you prefer tailored, one-to-one instruction. Whichever, you can arrange a date and time most suited to you. Choose between the Adana, Introduction or Wedding options below over three, four or six hours:

Adana Workshops are great if you’ve recently become the proud owner of an Adana. Bring your Adana with you for a truly bespoke workshop.

Introduction to Letterpress Workshops focus on the technical aspects of the craft.

Wedding Stationery Workshops are a lovely way to spend some time with your partner creating some very special Save the Dates yourself!

Group Workshops
Enjoy some fun-filled, inky hours in our vintage press-filled studio, with family and friends.

Perfect for small groups of friends and family, including creative hen and stag do’s. Ask about our children’s party packages!

We also offer unique, customisable workshops and team building experiences for businesses, organisations, schools and private groups, and can travel to your premises or event if you prefer!
