Learn how to make personalised Christmas cards using the traditional, and now endangered, letterpress printing process.
Participants will explore the history of Christmas card design, from the wholesome messages of hope in our modern era to the surreal and somewhat creepy designs sent out in the Victorian times, before getting their chance to explore the traditional printing techniques. Get fully hands on with metal type, locking up a forme and printing an image block. Everyone will leave the workshop with 10 copies of their own A6 Christmas cards for those last minute seasonal wishes!
