House Of Illustration
In July 2016 Print Menagerie was invited by House Of Illustration to run two Letterpress workshops – a Family Day and a Masterclass. Both workshops were stuffed with the technical basics of setting type. Participants learnt about type high, chases, furniture, quoins, and keys. It took a while for the adults to get to grips with left to right and upside down (this is the way that type is composed) but the kids were rolling and pulling like true apprentices.
The Master Class took a small group of Creatives and over the course of a day they inked up, locked up and printed up a storm of typographic prints.
