The Boat...

Before there was a bike (Black Bess) there was/is a boat (Gertie).  On occasion, 1-2-1 workshops are held on the boat.  When  Print Menagerie can be persuaded to pause peddling and spend a day afloat!

Basic Training: A Kiss

Workshops held on the boat are an opportunity to use a wider selection of type from the collection, both wood and lead, and to experiment on the larger Korrex proofing press. Print Menagerie was trained in letterpress by some old guard printmakers who knew how to finesse producing a good print – always kiss, never smash.  Our workshops attempt to lay down these fundamentals, whether they are taught on a boat or a bike.
