Letterpress Masterclass



The Tom Paine Printing Press would like to spread the word about the Letterpress Masterclass with Phil Baines at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft

Church Lane, Ditchling, East Sussex BN6 8TB, 01273 844744   

Monday 24 Feb 2014 11am - 5pm

5 spaces available

Adults £200 incl. materials, lunch and morning/afternoon refreshments

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the wonderful world of letterpress from Professor of typography Phil Baines. Phil is a graphic designer and letterpress practitioner, and Professor of Typography at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. He designed the re-branding for Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft which was influenced by the letterpress and lettering of the Museum’s collection. 

During this master class you will get a rare opportunity to print using the Stanhope Press which was used by founding guild members Eric Gill and Hilary Pepler to produce work for St Dominic’s Press. As the Museum is closed to the public on a Monday there will be unlimited access to the galleries for inspiration and you will have special access to works not on display to see and learn about our print collection from the Curator, which is bound to inspire your own letterpress creations. Participants will be able to produce work on the Stanhope and some of our smaller presses to take away. All materials for the day come supplied and delicious refreshments will be served making this master class a real treat for the discerning letterpress enthusiast!
