Letter Press Demonstration

People enjoy letterpress for many reasons, one being that they can produce a print without a computer. They feel the ink on their hands, and are happy they’ve made contact with something which is so beautiful and yet so simple. Our main aim is to encourage people to acquire these disappearing skills. Computers are making everything the same, rather bland and rather stereotypical. But with printing, you set some type and print it, and the results are unique, very individualistic; it’s like baking, sewing and all those handicrafts which are coming back as an antidote to the blandness of mass-production.

Ken Burnley of Juniper Press based in the Bluecoat, Liverpool, will be coming along to carry out demonstrations of traditional printing techniques.

This free demonstration takes place in The Atkinson Foyer all day form 11am – 4pm.
