Month of Print

Letterpress Workshops: September 25 & 26

Learn how to set and print metal type on both a cylinder proof press and a hand-fed platen press. We’ll cover the minutiae of handsetting, locking up and makeready. You’ll leave knowing how to recognise a tight tympan, how to check roller height and all about the finer points of good inking. You’ll learn how to feed the press, maintain ink levels, avoid offset and maintain registration. You’ll learn how to make a good impression.
