Letterpress Courses

With Les Ellis and Jon Packer and James Edgar.
New weekend courses available: 
Futurist Typography with James Edgar £160.00
11th/12th of June and the 25th/26th of June 
Until the Italian Futurist Manifesto in 1909, published by Marinetti, typography was a distant relative to the arts. The futurists broke the rules of traditional typography to convey the artistic force of words. This weekend will focus on working with movable wood and metal type to appreciate the enjoyment of "breaking the rules". Suitable for all levels whether a seasoned letterpress practitioner or new to the process. Students will gain a greater typographic understanding and leave with a number of printed works.
Artists' books and alternative structures.
Weekend course with Sarah Byrant £160
11th–12th June — 10:00–16:00
In this course artist's will learn a variety of simple structures,that can be combined to make complex and innovative books. We will start with the accordian and pamphlet and move on from there.We'll discuss how to make books directly from prints or drawings as well on how to add smaller art works such as photographs, using simple paper engineering.
Students will leave with several books of their own and with the ability to continue making their own books.
Sarah Byrant is an established Book artist who has received many awards for her work. Sarah is also an experienced teacher currently working at Wells College, New York. We are extremely lucky to have her for this weekend.
Sarah will be giving a talk at our Random Night on 24th June.
