Ladies of Letterpress: a weekend workshop in pictures…

7 Aug

Fonts galore! Messy inks turning our prints into all kinds of colours on an old Adana 6×4 letterpress and a cute little flat bed. Welcome to a peek at this weekend’s Letterpress workshops, as part of the COAS Summerschool. Big thanks to Heather, Ruby and Nanna for taking part and creating some fantastic prints and designs. Below are some pictures to give you an idea of what we did…

All pictures copyright Sarah Edmonds / the artists!

The Letterpress weekend course at Howard Gardens will run again next year. Keep checking the WORKSHOPS page for news of forthcoming classes / creative get togethers etc. We four ladies of letterpress from this weekend hope to meet again (sounds like the witches of Macbeth!) for a crafty catch up!

I was pleased to win a load of interesting type on eBay last week, which should be arriving in the post very soon. Expect some further letterpress play coming soon from me!
