'Letterpress Christmas Cards' with Print to the People


Following on from September’s ‘Beginners Letterpress Printing’ workshops, join us for the ‘Letterpress Christmas Cards’ workshop. These workshops are facilitated by Print to the People, an artist led social enterprise dedicated to the production and promotion of traditional printmaking processes.

Letterpress is a traditional printing technique that has been used for hundreds of years. Originally developed to print text from metal letters, letterpress has recently been adopted by artists, illustrators and graphic designers as an elegant way to combine text imagery on the page.

Using a collection of antique wood and metal type, participants will be encouraged to further explore letterpress and even print a range of Christmas cards!

These sessions are open to all ages, with particular focus towards the elderly.
