COURSES & WORKSHOPS


Self creating is a big experience for children and adults alike. It's fun to learn and enjoy it at the same time. We would like to share the fun of printing and having an end result by ourself, not buying it ready made.

We hold workshops where you can look in the world of printing for a few hours or a day. We hold thematic courses, if you feel like to learn how to make your own designed print. And we organise summer camps where you can combine all of it with a nice holiday.

If you have never printed anything yet but you feel like to make a poster, postcard of your own graphic or to make an album, we show you how and we teach you the basics. If you are already in practice and you would like to learn printing on a higher level or do it vocationally, then you should come to one of our advanced courses!

Our intesive courses is mainly for graphic artists, graphic students and those who would like to do printing as a proffession. We recommend our small courses to letterpress- and handicraft-fans, for studenst and children.

Any qualification or printing knowledge needed for none of our courses.

In all of our courses we try to teach methods, that you can use at home with your own every-day tools.

Our aim is that the printer’s and the artist’s work be aligned and that the artist make a design that he is able to print even by himself.

In our Letterpress Workshop we provide you the place, the machines and equipments, the materials (if you need) and the proffessional help. You only need to bring your creativity and your hardworking hands!
