About the Event
Printmaking Workshop with Francesca Kay…
Poet and printer Francesca Kay offers you a chance to try letterpress printing – making words with movable type and ink.
It’s a 600 year old craft, and more fun than a computer! Francesca will help you find a word or short phrase that has meaning for you, helping you typeset and print it on her vintage Ajax tabletop printing press. You will have a unique memento of this ancient and enjoyable art. And there’s a special poster made with wooden type that you can also print to take away as well.
If you can read backwards it will help!
