Next Steps in Letterpress – 5 Week Course

6th November @ 6:30 pm - 4th December @ 9:00 pm

£67.50 – £135.00

Develop your skills in letterpress techniques on this five-week follow on course.
This course will run over 5 sessions on Wednesday evenings 6th November – 4th December 6:30-9:00pm

Throughout the course you’ll have the opportunity to work with our metal type and wood type sets and various traditional presses to develop your ideas and knowledge of letterpress.

You’ll be encouraged to explore your own projects and work on existing ideas, with the support and guidance of the tutor. Along the way you’ll learn about letterpress context, history and technical terminology.

What experience do I need?

This course is ideal for those who already have a basic knowledge of letterpress and is aimed at those who have attended our Introduction to Letterpress Course or our Letterpress Taster Day. Those who have learnt some basic letterpress techniques elsewhere and would like a recap of their previous skills are also welcome to attend.

What will I make?

You’ll produce a range of 3-4 letterpress editions of prints onto various papers. You are encouraged to bring along your own ideas and projects to work from.

Who is my tutor?

Susie Rumsby is a Printmaking Instructor at Leeds Arts University, where she introduces students to screen print, etching, linocut, monoprint, letterpress and bookbinding. Before coming to teach art in Leeds, Susie studied printmaking in Portland, Oregon, where she also worked as a master printer’s apprentice, an artists’ assistant, and at Portland Art Museum helping to put on shows of prints and drawings. Susie is a founding committee member of Leeds Print Workshop, and believes in making the fun of printmaking open to as many people as possible.

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and accessible toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one blue badge car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street, subject to availability.

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
