LETTERPRESS – COME AND TRY
Tutor: Jessica Hollywood
31st March February 2023 10 AM – 1 PM
£50 – 6 places
Suitable for: Beginners
Come and get your hands inky and your creativity flowing in this taster session workshop which will introduce you to the technique of letterpress.
Jessica will introduce the session by giving you a historical overview about the history of letterpress before allowing you to explore the range of vintage type blocks of varying fonts, and how to use them. You will learn how to compose type, mix inks and operate the different presses, printing on different papers and card to see how letterpress printing creates its unique impression.
This is your chance to be creative! Choose your own type, set it on your galley, choose your ink colour, and print! If you wish to have a more in depth experience of letterpress printing, we offer one to one workshops (from £225).
Our come and try sessions offer an introduction to some of the key printmaking techniques offered and practiced here at Seacourt, and a glimpse into the processes involved in creating hand-made prints. You will be guided and encouraged by experienced artists who use printmaking in their own art practice, in a professionally equipped workshop setting.
