Print Your Own Notebook Drop in Session - Friday 30th June 2023 3.00pm to 5.00pm
Come and experience the art of letterpress printing and print your own wood type letterpress notebook in our special On Paper Festival drop in session.
Choose from a selection of wood type and typeset either your initials or a short word. We'll help you lock-up your chosen letters in our Stephenson Blake proofing press using wood and metal furniture, then you'll ink up using the ink colour of your choice. Choose from a selection of different coloured blank A5 covers and pull your very own letterpress printed wood type notebook cover!
With your notebook cover hot off the press, you'll get choose the inside pages for your notebook: dot, plain or lined, with a choice of colourful end papers. We'll then spiral bind your notebook, ready for you to take home.
Drop in any time between 3 and 5pm. Depending on numbers at any given time, there may be a bit of a wait for your turn printing.
Please note this is a drop in taster session designed as a short introduction to letterpress printing. For the full experience, have a look at our 3 hour Letterpress Print Workshop.
When: Friday 30th June 2023, drop in between 3.00pm and 5.00pm.
