Letterpress Workshops

If you’ve 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:

Magic Rock Brewing
Glastonbury Festival
The Hepworth Wakefield
Firstsite Colchester
Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft
Bristol Artists Book Event (BABE)
Secret Garden Party
Secret Cinema
Leeds Print Festival
Leeds Zine Fair
Ossett Observer’s Festival in a Day
Bradford Festival
Bradford Science Festival
Bradford Apple Day
Saltaire Arts Trail
Supernormal Festival
The Tetley
The Tour de France Steel Stage
Leeds College of Art
Leeds City College
Leeds University
Bradford College
West Yorkshire Print Workshop
London Centre for Book Arts


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, where we run a week long summer letterpress course in August amongst all the other things we do.

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 here from you.
