Learn the art of letterpress

Would you like to learn a new skill? If you live in Auckland here’s your chance. GTO Printers have one space left in this weekend’s workshop “Learn the Basics of Letterpress in One Day.”

You’ll learn to design and print a page of a font catalogue using the eclectic collection of lead and wood type and ornaments and also design and produce a set of personal cards with your own choice of subject.

A place in this workshop is $140 plus GST. It’s run by Graham Judd, owner of GTO Printers and qualified letterpress machinist, with help from other letterpress enthusiasts. The class runs from 9.30am – 4pm this Saturday 19 April, so get in quick. See their website for class details, to book for this class or to view more class dates.
