Come along to this fun workshop and be a printer for an hour! Set your name in metal type, ink up an old fashioned printing press and appear in a WANTED poster!

The National Print Museum travels around the country with a Farley Proofing Press, a key piece of the Museum’s  collection. This is a fun opportunity to work with artefacts such as composing sticks, metal type, inking up and the proofing press as well as learning about Johannes Gutenberg and his invention of moveable type.
