noun let·ter·press \ˈle-tər-ˌpres\
method of printing in which raised surfaces covered with ink are pressed onto paper


Letterpress is a traditional printing method using metal or wooden type onto which paper is pressed, leaving an ink impression on the page. By adjusting force of the pressure, this impression can be varied from a light ‘kiss’ to a deep imprint in the texture of the paper.

Over the past decade there has been revival in letterpress printing, as a new generation discovered the possibilities of the craft – the gratifyingly tactile effect of a deep crisp impression, the varying textures left by printing with wood, metal and even plastic and the artistic possibilities of overlapping layers of ink, built up one colour at a time.


Due to the nature of this workshop we are limiting the numbers to 6 students per workshop, please bear this in mind if you are thinking of booking.


Age 17+ (no exceptions)

PLEASE NOTE: as of March 2020 we have had to add VAT to all our prices - to minimise this added expense for you, we have lowered our workshop and course prices before added the 20%.  This means the prices are a little bit higher, but we (the school and tutor) have absorbed some of the extra cost. We apologise for the slight price increase.
