Introduction to Letterpress, May
This is a unique opportunity to slow down for the day, print on our incredible antique machinery and take home a set of stationery that you will letterpress print yourself.
This workshop is designed for the first time printer who has a keen interest in the world of print or simply someone who is looking to dip their toe in the industry (we would not recommend putting any body parts in the presses). During this introductory workshop, we’ll guide you through setting up and letterpress printing on our two Chandler & Price printing presses, which are over 100 years old.
You'll learn the fundamentals of letterpress through:
- An introduction to the history of printing
- Mixing ink
- Mounting printing plates
- Feeding paper into the press
- Running a job
You will take home (along with your newfound skills):
- 25+ two colour greeting cards that you will print on the day
- Matching envelopes for your cards
- Enamel printing pin
- 3 x Hungry Workshop greeting cards from our shop
Time: 10am - 4pm
Date: Saturday 4 May, 2019
Location: Hungry Workshop, 461 High Street, Northcote VIC 3170
Lunch is included on the day, as well as light refreshments. All you need to bring is an appetite for getting inky and your closed toed shoes.
