What's on


Weekend course
Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May 2022
11 – 5pm

During the course you will have the option to work with a selection of wood and lead type in a range of typefaces and sizes. We have an 8 x 5” Adana press for printing small work, and a large Imperial platen press for printing larger wood type. *Please note that if you wish to use the workshop for making your own work after the course, you can use WYPW’s selection of lead type, up to 30pt size. Nick brings in his own wood type for use during the course, which is not available to use after the workshop. We are always looking to add to our collection of type, and build on our letterpress facilities, but do not as yet have any larger wood type available for members to use.
