New students came to the open day

Welcome to the Letterpress room!”
Today me and some of my colleagues helped our tutor Kim, on the open day…
New people/students came in to visit some of our workshops rooms.
I loved the first experience that I had in this workshop, but today I enjoyed even more, just the simple fact of being there, not in a rush, doing as many prints as I want it, gave me a better idea of it.

We made some prints with some sentences created by  Kim:

We used wood letters and black ink. We let the new students print the sentence below: “Letterpress Printing at the Cass” in this little machine so they could have an experience for the first time, how to work with letters instead of being in front to a computer and pick the font.

While I was there I had the idea of doing it again my “Fanzine” cover from Critical Design Thinking project… I only have done the ampersand symbol… but I really liked the result… what I like about it is the texture that I made with the ink. I did not use any of the Print machine but I used the Ampersand mad by wood as a stamp, roll the ink on the letter and ten press the letter on the colour sheet of paper.


Here is some pictures from today’s session:
