Letterpress Workshop in Western Australia

Following the success of the first workshop at the Abbey Press in the Monastery town of New Norcia in Western Australia, a third three-day workshop is now being offered. Dates are Friday 30 October 2015 to Sunday 1 November 2015. The workshop will be suitable for beginners, or those with a little experience. Equipment includes a good range of metal and wood type, borders, etc., an Adana and a small proof press, an Arab treadle press and a Grafix (Vandercook lookalike) proof press. The workshop includes full board, a tour of the Monastery town, and a visit to the Library, which holds a collection of early printed books. The workshop will be taught by Claire Bolton, a printer with 40 years letterpress experience (and a research degree in early printing history).
