Letterpress Workshops

If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands covered in ink and learn about the letterpress printing process then look no further.

The Print Project regularly delivers letterpress printing workshops across the UK at a wide variety of events, institutions and festivals, some of which include:

Our workshops are flexible, engaging and fun. They are educational and creative experiences which appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds.

We can bring pre-made up designs suited to your event for people to print from or we can really roll out the creative carpet and let people create their own unique poster from a large selection of wood type. Our workshops are always busy, visual affairs and smiles are guaranteed.

We haven’t done a hen party yet, but we nearly did.

Alternatively you can come to us and spend some quality time in our fully stocked workshop in Shipley.

We are always up for a workshop challenge, so if you think we can bring the fun and ink to your event or you simply want to come down to the workshop and make a mess, then please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
