Event description
Introduction to Basic Papermaking and Letterpress with Ingrid Mulder and Ann Ong

About this Event

Discover the rich history of papermaking and letterpress printing in this two-part workshop.

Session 1 will be an introduction to papermaking using Western and Japanese sheet forming methods. The class will cover moulds, deckles, recycling paper, sheet forming, pressing, drying and decorative effects. Students will be able to create their own handmade papers using recycled paper and mulberry fibre. Ingrid studied and worked with master papermakers in Japan for over 12 years, and she has a wealth of papermaking expertise to impart on new students. Bring coloured silk, threads, natural fibres and pressed flowers to use as inclusions.

Session 2 will introduce the basics of letterpress printing, covering the basics of hand typesetting with metal type to produce your own print using handmade paper from Session 1. This historic method of relief printing dates back to the 1400’s and was used to print newspaper, books and other media until the advent of offset printing. Ann runs Bright Press and has had almost a decade of letterpress printing experience. In this class students will work to print a simple text-based project, such as a short quote/ one-liner, poem, or greeting card. Bring a short quote/ one-liner/ something simple you would like to print.

This a 2-part workshop over 2x Saturdays. Each session is 3 hours long.

Session 2 Letterpress - Saturday 5 September 9:30am-12:30pm
