Hometype: Learn Letterpress Online This April!
26th February 2021
We’re really excited to welcome back artist David Armes for a new ONLINE letterpress course starting in April.
Our Online Courses have been really popular, and present a way for us to continue to connect, share and teach printmaking whilst we are unable to meet in person.
This new course starts on Saturday 3rd April and runs for 12 weeks, with sessions taking place every other week. Each session will be recorded so participants can catch up if they are unable to make a live session, and there will be additional opportunities for contact in between sessions.
Developing your creativity and resourcefulness at home
During the course, you will create unique typographical elements and combine them into a portfolio of wonderfully graphic monoprints. Working with a ‘less is more’ approach with common materials, you will take advantage of the need to work at home creatively and cheaply.
The course is taught from a professional artist’s point of view; in David’s practice working with letterpress, he often combines traditional typographic elements with textures printed from the materials and equipment used in the letterpress process itself. These elements of improvisation and play are key to the sessions.
Please note that our online courses have been extremely popular, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
