We believe in the importance of preserving letterpress as an art form and for it’s historical value. Over the years we have collected numerous sets of moveable types from all over the world and used them to conduct workshops for keen participants to experience printing the old fashioned way.
Our in-house, workshop set-up is a Vandercook SP-15 which is an excellent poster printing press. During the 3 hour session, we will guide and teach the participants how to handset and print their own type compositions, and takeaway will be inky fingers and their customised poster prints at the end of the class.
Choose between two paper types for the workshops. For an additional $30, we will provide you with Multi-coloured Marbled Paper that is marbled in-house for you to do your prints!
The classes are rated NC16, and for everyone who has a curious mind on art, design and print.
Once you place an order for the workshop, we will contact you about the workshop availability!
A less cost and time efficient process versus digital print today. So why have we persisted in the last 10 years?
Due to the uncertainties revolving around COVID safe gathering regulations we are currently withholding our workshop sessions.
Yes. We are able to do that via The Gentlemen's Press (TGP). Please do contact us for a customized print and/or design quote.
