Spread Some Inky Joy!

This one-day workshop will take participants through setting, imposing, registration, proofing and printing. You will print an edition of A6 postcards of your own choice of words and make your design from the artists’ collection of type, ornament and printing blocks.

The session will start by quickly setting and printing something to get a feel for the process. You will then have time to explore the collection and plan out your design. The next stages are setting and imposing the design ready for the press. Printing will be completed either on an Adana 8 x 5 Press or the Farley Proofing Press. Each participant will go home with an edition of their postcards and a copy of each other’s.

  • Tools, equipment and a range of Materials will be provided.
  • Tea, coffee, and light snacks will be provided but do bring a packed lunch with you.
  • Wear old, warm clothes and tie back long hair (if applicable)

Book Workshop

The workshop will be held in my studio which is part of the Outer Spaces network. Outer Spaces at Edinburgh Park is in a repurposed commercial office space. This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow print enthusiasts and share ideas while enjoying a creative and relaxed atmosphere.
