MAKING THE MOST OF IT

I’ve wanted to learn how to print with letterpress for years so its been fantastic doing the course at the Tasmanian Polytechnic.

The course has ended now and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in type, printing or traditional craftsmanship. Contact the Polytechnic for more info.

While I was there I FULLY took advantage of the knowledge and skill of Gil and Nathaniel. I had a few projects I wanted to print and they were wonderfully enthusiastic and helpful.

As part of the recent Imagination Partner project I produced a limited edition of letterpress prints based on the Woven Image Zip & Quiz range by Amy Saunders…


and an invitation…pink. We printed this on the Chandler and Price. Essentially the same press as our recent purchase and a beautiful piece of equipment.

His studio is a botanical and zoological treasure trove …

Wandered past this one on my way to Nicks studio this week. Looks like some kind of ceramic/resin infill – very nice.
