As part of the LCBA Season At Foyles book shop in central London I’m running a Letterpress Workshop for Kids alongside the Book-making for children event
In this bespoke workshop participants will be introduced to the beautiful craft of letterpress printing. Appreciated for a quality of print that is hard to imitate with modern printing technologies, letterpress has been around for centuries and was the most common method of printing until the middle of the 20th century. Under the expert guidance of instructors from the London Centre for Book Arts, you will have the opportunity to use letterpress type to print covers for your very own simple and stylish hand-bound book. The class is suitable for complete beginners and all materials and tools are provided.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Charing Cross Road”
