Print a Letterpress Poster Workshop

On the Day

Print a Letterpress Poster Workshop. Experience a quick mini session designed to introduce you to the joys of letterpress! Pop in to our studio, browse our vintage type drawers and ink up a printastic poster!

Bring along a favourite quote, song lyric or poem perhaps and under the expert guidance of Chris, our printer, produce a fabulous poster print for your wall.

If you’re not sure what to print in your Print a Poster session, we have a library of typography, letterpress and print books to inspire that you can browse before your session starts.

Have an idea of what you’d like to print? We recommend no more than 15 words.

Book a 60-minute slot below with a time and date suited to you, subject to availability. Email to confirm dates.
