Christmas Card Workshop

Christmas Card Workshop. Hand print your own Christmas cards this year in our heritage studio. This 2 hour session is for up to 2 people to print a design each. The time will allow for 12 cards per person to be printed (or 24 cards if one person attends). If time allows there may be an opportunity to print cards at an additional cost of 50p each (inc. envelope).

On the Day

Experience a session designed to introduce you to the joys of letterpress and leave with a bundle of Christmas cards to delight your friends and family!

Bring your idea with you, browse our vintage type drawers and ink up a printastic design under the expert guidance of Chris, our printer.

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

Do you have an idea of what you’d like to print? We recommend keeping it short and sweet for maximum impact, so ideally less than 10 words. Colour palettes are limited to one colour per session.

For workshop dates / availability, select the date button to book a 2 hour slot (1-3pm).
