Pop Press Letterpress Workshops at our Nottingham shop
Now that we’ve had time to settle into our new Pop Press shop and studio we hope to post more regularly!
One of our highlights for July was doing letterpress workshops with two wonderfully enthusiastic couples. Both wanted to do the workshop for different reasons, but everyone learnt a lot and had fun doing it, hopefully!
Mark and Beks (an extremely creative couple) saw the potential of using letterpress for their range of greeting cards. With this in mind we created a 4 hour workshop to show them the essentials they needed to know to take their ideas into this medium and give them the confidence to invest in their own letterpress.
Chris & Vicki, both Graphic Designers working in a digital environment, saw the potential of letterpress as a medium that would offer them something different to their everyday work. Texture, imperfection, unpredictability and a beautifully tactile end product.
I think they really embraced the idea that a mistake could not be undone with a click of a mouse but could become the catalyst for a new idea or new way of doing something.
A huge thanks to Mark, Beks, Chris and Vicki for doing our first workshops.
