An experimental letterpress printmaking day!
Create postcards with your favourite poems or words inspired by women, using vintage text on a mobile letterpress.
Reflecting on Mary Leadbeater, and other women lost in history, social justice, the power of the pamphet in 1700’s abolitionism and suffragette eras. we will create cards or small prints on my Adana Letterpress, you may also wish to combine with drypoint as seen in photos, or a monoprint. Choose your own heroine, or you will get plenty of inspiration on the day! I have a few great books and you’re very welcome to bring more or items of interest with you on the day. I have scheduled this workshop close to St Brigid’s Day, whether you believe in the goddess or the saint, she is a symbol for female creativity so I’m sure Brigid will weave her way into our conversations!
A day to create and celebrate women through print.
