A letterpress workshop with SHADOWPLAY, Cheltenham.

Just before xmas, I hosted a letterpress workshop for the fun team at Shadowplay. It was a great afternoon, whereby the group of 7 (hopefully) learned a lot about the beautiful ways of letterpress. 

We had gold, black, blue and fluorescent inks on both presses that day- we jam packed it in to say the least!! Some had a clear vision of what they wanted, whilst others maybe came along with one but changed their minds (upon seeing the possibilities and understanding the process a little more) when it came to setting up and printing. The variety of creations that came out of that workshop are amazing- we had posters on the go, coasters, postcards, the lot! ACE! Have a look at them in action...

This is definitely the biggest group I've ever taken but I think it worked really well, with some people setting up new things, some researching, some mixing ink, whilst others were printing; there was always something going on and something to do. Honestly, I hope they loved it as much as me! I also run one on one workshops and groups (usually) up to 5. If this looks like an afternoon up your street, please get in touch and get booked in. Come have a go, whether you've had a bash at it before or had no prior experience at all... All are welcome! I also sell vouchers online (go to shop) which make for fab presents.

Below are just a few pics of some from the day's results! ENJOY!
