Vintage Festival Here We Come!

I'll be at the Vintage Festival on the Southbank, SE1, this weekend, helping to man the St Bride Print Workshop stand, which happens to be fellow printer, Richard Lawrence's pink milk float,above, (driven all the way down the A40 from Oxford). We'll be next to the Royal Festival Hall.

Come and say hello, print something, find out about St Bride Foundation and Printing Library, our workshop facilities and the courses we run!

The first St Bride Summer School!

What a busy couple of weeks it has been! After finally recovering from the Artsmart event, I have been teaching on St Bride's first Summer School. Another great group of students, featuring an antiquarian book collector, a graphic designer, a visiting student from America and a fledgling printer who has just obtained her first press. One of the things I love is the variety of people I come into contact with, all learning to print for different reasons. Welcome to the club, chaps!

I have another Summer School booking up for next week and St Bride have a free open evening on Monday, from 6pm, where the public can come into the workshop and have a go at printing, lino cutting and bookbinding. Come on down!
