People Powered Press Letterpress Printing Workshop
4th July 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£18
Come and print on the giant People Powered Press, as well as make your own poster on a smaller press to take home.
This relaxed evening will consist of:
– Printing on the giant B0 People Powered Press, a new bespoke (and slightly bonkers) printing press by Split, with a brand new typeface cut in steel. Posters printed will be sent out and displayed in the community.
– Printing your own poster to take home: either from a piece of poetry from the project, or your own phrase/sentence on a standard sized proofing press. (If you wish to use your own phrase, please let us know in advance, we only have the capacity for 10 people to set their own phrases. Please email your words to [email protected], for attention of Oli Bentley.)
– A chance to talk to letterpress printer, Nick Loaring, about his practice at The Print Project, and to discuss the These Northern Types project with lead artist Oli Bentley.
What you will need.
Please don’t dress in your Sunday best in case of ink smudges. Flat comfortable shoes are advised. All materials will be supplied.
