Typesetting and printing courses

Typesetting and printing courses by LetterpressAmsterdam, in a small, but definitely the finest typographical workshop in the centre of Amsterdam!

Only a few places left for the 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. (Possibility to camp)

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.

Some comments:
It is such an enormous joy to work with this well motivated team in a great atmosphere and under the fantastic guidance of Thomas – who is for me a master typographer – printer and a fantastic teacher.
