Festive Introduction to Letterpress

Festive Introduction to Letterpress

9 Dec

Learn the basics of letterpress printing in this introductory arts workshop led by artist and printmaker Jordan Baines.

Beginners will learn of the traditional techniques employed by historical and contemporary printmakers.

Participants will then put this knowledge to the test - creating their own Christmas cards, prints and bespoke wrapping paper - perfect gifts and accessories for the festive period!

Each booking comes with a choice of hot drink and mince pie. Lunch is also available to purchase from our cafe partners Port Coffee on the day.
