What else you should know

We'll be standing throughout the workshop. I can work with children from the age of 7 upwards, but anyone under 18 will need an accompanying adult. Guests will be required to sign liability waivers.

What I’ll provide

Letterpress printing equipment, paper and ink, aprons and hand wipes.

What to bring

Tie back long hair.
If you're bringing children, please bring aprons for them (mine are all adult size).
