Free Family February Half-Term Activities

The Trouserpress Letterpress


This February half term, artists Tom Armstrong and Paul Butler (formerly of the print studio at The Waiting Room) will be sharing their creation ‘The Trouserpress Letterpress’; a fun, free introduction to the art of letterpress for all the family.

Take inspiration from Gee Vaucher’s own letterpress art work to create your own block of type and print it on Tom and Paul’s converted press!

‘The Trouserpress Letterpress’ will run all half term week, 10am to 5pm as a drop-in activity. On Saturday February 11 and Saturday February 18, between 11am and 1pm, and 2pm and 4pm, Tom and Paul will be on hand to help you with your prints and tell you more about the history letterpress.

(Parents and carers must accompany and supervise their children at all times during this activity)
