WORKSHOPS

We offer small, personalised workshops across letterpress and the book arts.

If you are interested in attending a workshop in the book arts, calligraphy, letterpress, wood type or metal type, we encourage you to contact us to discuss what you might like to do. By personalising our workshops, we can arrange times and content that suit you best.

We have a maximum of 4 participants at each workshop, but pairs and threes also work well.

Workshops (10am – 4pm) generally cost $170 per person with materials supplied; however, single person workshops attract a $50 premium.

Some workshops will cost more due to additional mentoring post-workshop.

Advertised workshops (e.g. the taking it deeper series) also have a maximum of 4 participants and we let our mailing list know first, so sign up and be an early bird!

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

BUILDING NARRATIVE

When we make a book ourselves we are often thrilled that we have made the container – and pay less attention to what is contained. 

This workshop will focus on building narrative in your book-making, encouraging you to find ways to use the book form to tell a story – short and sweet, simple or complex, political or fairytale. We will explore techniques to offer readers an interesting experience.

  • Materials supplied
  • All levels
  • 6 hour workshop 10am – 4pm
  • 1 hour personalised follow-up within 4 weeks of workshop
  • $200 per person
