A Rare Opportunity to Print with History

Wood type has a rich legacy in the world of printmaking, offering a warmth and character digital printing simply can't replicate. However, as these beautiful pieces of typographic history become increasingly rare, the chances to work with them are few and far between. Our course at The Armarie Room breaks down these barriers, giving you hands-on access to our exquisite collection of wooden type. Whether you're a typography aficionado or a curious beginner, this course is your chance to connect with the past in a profoundly creative way.

Your Creative Journey: From Learning to Mastering

Over four exhilarating weeks, you'll embark on a creative journey that starts with the basics of type composition and leads to mastering inking methods and press operation. Imagine the thrill of setting your own type by hand, mixing inks to achieve the perfect hue, and then pulling the lever on our historic 1860 Albion Press to see your vision imprinted on paper. It's not just printing; it's making history.

No Experience? No Problem!

This course isn't just for the print-savvy; it's for anyone with a love for art, history, or simply looking for a new creative outlet. You'll start with small experimental pieces, gradually working up to larger, more complex layouts. And don't worry about keeping pace; this course is designed to match your unique learning speed, ensuring a rewarding experience for all.

Connect, Create, and Collect

One of the most beautiful aspects of this course is the community it builds. You'll be learning and creating alongside a small group of like-minded individuals, all while discovering the joys of letterpress printing. It's an opportunity to share ideas, inspire, and be inspired, creating not just art but lasting memories and friendships.

And let's not forget the best part: at the end of the course, you'll take home not just the knowledge and experience you've gained but beautifully printed original works of art. These aren't just posters; they're your creations, ready to adorn your walls or be shared with loved ones.
