The Derby Small Print Company at gallerytop.
Next Saturday, 29 February, we're pleased to have our friends from the Small Print Company in the gallery demonstrating letter press printing. They are here from 12.00 and you can see the technique of letterpress printing and the skill involved in the process.
You can also try it out for yourself and learn about the many opportunities for your creative urge at the Small Print Company studio in Derby. Chris and Hannah run workshops on creating a letterpress print, mini sessions on printing a poster and Hannah is a skilled bookbinding tutor.
Call in to the gallery on Saturday 29 February and compose yourself , explore your type of creativity, get an impression of print and book a course. The Small Print Company even have a DIY kit available
Printmaking of any kind is a beautiful tactile process and letterpress demonstrates an high level of craftsmanship, creativity and precision. The equipment which Chris and Hannah use is time-tested and lovingly maintained and this commitment to excellence is apparent in their print service, especially their wedding products
The demo by the Small Print Company at gallerytop on the 29th highlights the 'Love Letters' exhibition which has been curated by the Wirksworth artist Bernie Rutter. So on the 29th you'll be able to see a print being being produced and have the opportunity to admire the work of artists in the exhibition.
We look forward to seeing you
