Bristol Set In Print will be running four workshops over the Summer months. These are aimed at those with a little experience and interest in Letterpress printing, the idea will be to have a group comprised of a mix of illustrators, artists, writers, graphic designers. There may be the possibility of some warm up workshops before these take place for those who are completely new to the practice but would like to take part.
These workshops will be delivered by a group of ex-printers from the letterpress print industry in Bristol. It will a chance for a unique collaboration celebrating the history of the city whilst developing a new form of print. The plan will be to create a large artwork of a large map, showing where the old print houses once were.
There will be four workshops taking place either at Spike Print Studio or The Letterpress Collective Each will involve a different stage of the printing processes.
