What you'll do
I run a range of workshops, suitable for complete beginners and printers alike. Sessions are for a max of two participants at a time to allow plenty of one-to-one attention. In the Adana for Beginners class you will learn how to print your own stationery on this classic table top press using loose metal and wood type, and antique picture blocks. We will cover every step from the set up of the press, "make ready", type setting, all the way through to clean up. I have a range of paper products to print on, and ink in all the colours of the rainbow, including metallics and neons! I will also cover press maintenance and share my suppliers and other useful links, should you wish to continue printing at home. I'm proud that many of my previous workshoppers have gone on to set up their own print businesses!
I'm Jen - designer, printmaker, biscuit-scoffer and teacher. I've been running my colourful, eco-friendly print biz for five years now, and teaching friendly workshops for the last three! I've taught people from all over Europe how to print on the Adana 8x5, and motorised Vicobold press. Everyone from complete beginners, to professional printmakers; designers and artists, to pharmacists and lawyers! My workshops are run regularly from my bright garden studio, and even if you arrive with no ideas or plans, you will leave with a parcel full of your own personalised hand-printed goodies.
There is a kitchen attached to the studio, so there will be tea, coffee and biscuits aplenty.
Aprons will be provided
Where you'll be
We will be printing your rather lovely new stationery from my home, in Epsom Surrey. Larger than your average, and hidden at the bottom of my (slightly wild) garden, my studio gets plenty of natural light, is cosy in Winter, and cool in Summer.
