Letterpress workshop £20.00
The super talented Francesca Kay shows how great it is to make and print words the old fashioned way with metal printing blocks and a vintage tabletop printing press. Come and have a go at printing words in a way unchanged for hundreds of years. A hands-on workshop where you can print your name, or words important to you. You will take away your own printed words, and have the opportunity to print a poster made with wood letters prepared by Francesca. Come and get a little inky, and find out how to make a good impression.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners - it is lots of fun, entertaining and unique. You do not need to bring anything with you as all tools and materials are provided for you.
Choose between the 10am - 12noon session or the 1pm - 3pm session. The venue is Sweet Williams based at 6 - 8 Herbert Street, Pontardawe, SA8 4EB. Please note that this workshop is held on the second floor, so there are a total of 16 steps to navigate (with plenty of space for a break half way if needed).
You will receive a complimentary choice of tea, coffee, pink lemonade and some sweet treats to enjoy during the workshop, together with a voucher for 10% off in store on the day of the workshop.
