Leeds Print Workshop

A five week course.

Explore the wonders of letterpress on this 5 week introductory course.

Throughout this short course you'll learn and explore the process of letterpress using both metal and wood type.

Your tutor will begin by demonstrating how to set type, what all of our letterpress equipment does, and how to print on our galley and Albion presses. Along the way you'll learn about letterpress history and specialised vocabulary.

As the course progresses, students will have the opportunity to set and print their own type, beginning simply and working towards layered compositions in multiple colours.

    Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is fully wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and disabled toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one dedicated disabled car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street.
