Letterpress Printing at p98a

Get your hands dirty and explore the fundamentals of letterpress. Theoretical and mostly practical work is waiting for you. Erik Spiekermann and Jan Gassel opened this lovely space p98a in Berlin, where this workshop is taking place. It is wonderful to experience working with letterpress and everybody who attended the always sold-out worshop each year loved it.

This workshop is for everybody who is interested in typography and letterpress. For everybody who always wanted to know how letterpress actually is working. You don’t need to come prepared with anything – a basic understanding for design, proportion and type helps though.

During the workshop

You'll work in four groups of three people, each with their own press to work on. Experience letterpress printing as it has been done 50 years ago with original type from that era.

When and where is the workshop taking place?

On Thursday, November 8th, from 10am (10:00) to 5pm (17:00) at p98a, Potsdamer Strasse 98a, 10785 Berlin
