What happens in this class?

Whether you're an advanced printer or a true beginner, you will find it not only a labour of love but will definitely remember how it is to be at one with yourself, away from your computer screens and smart phones.

The workshop covers the following aspects:

  • Introduction to hand-setting metal/wood type & locking up;

Incredible workshop, beautiful little studio! Juliette was so helpful and willing to share all her knowledge, the time flies. Would definitely recommend if you want to start to learn letterpress or if you want to make use of their equipment.

Great one-day Letterpress course, David and Juliet were really knowledgeable and good fun. Small but well equipped studio, loads of nice type to play with! Definitely recommend.

Your Teacher

Pixel Press is the experimental printmaking space of artists David Vassie & Julieta H. Adame. A collaborative platform for people of different interests connected to language and printing. Art studio, publishing house, classroom. We like to share what we know and have learnt with professional printers, designers & artists, we find letterpress extremely satisfying and detest the idea of seeing type being turned into coffee tables, akin to toys being entombed in their packaging, never to be played with.

We had such a brilliant time at the workshop. Dave and Juliette were perfect hosts, generous with their time, patience and expertise. They have a great selection of type and it was such a fantastic insight into the print process. Their passion for making stuff is very infectious! Highly recommended and great value for money.
