Summer Courses at LetterpressAmsterdam

Don’t worry! Not all letterpress summer courses are fully booked, here are still two great opportunities!

Summer Workshop in Belgium
A 5-day workshop
Mon 13–Fri 17 August, from 10:00–17:00 hrs

The workshop will take place at the attractive and light-filled AtelierT in Bierbeek (Belgium). AtelierT – an initiative of Niels Goovaerts and Katleen Vereecken – is situated close to Leuven. In a rural setting we’ll be working with poetry and type, with time for food, drink and discussion.

During this workshop in the studio of LetterpressAmsterdam, you’ll be learning the finer details of typesetting, proofing, lay-out, setting up a forme, preparing for and printing. At the same time, you’ll learn about press maintenance etc.
