Letterpress Printing a Poster

You’ll be working in pairs to create a slogan that represents your feelings about Trees in Urban spaces, parks or in the landscape. You will be using Ocean Studios Protest Font and our flatbed press to create your posters.

Dry Point Etching

Learn the art of dry point using everyday items like Tetra Pak, transforming everyday items like orange juice cartoons into an original print. We will be working in the Print Room using an etching press and specialist equipment.

The café will be open throughout the day for refreshments, and you’ll get a chance to see some of our other presses in action in the cafe area.
