LETTERPRESS BASICS Workshop by Supersense

  • Icon workshop.svgWorkshop

The Letterpress Workshop by Supersense has been established to make one dream come true: to exclusively and passionately work with pure analog tools for the creation of all projects, collaborations, products, and ideas.

 

Located in a former printing shop in the middle of Vienna, Supersense has created a tiny but beautiful epicenter for original analog machines and tools. Investing all their time and love into exploring and upgrading old machines with the goal to produce real, warm, all-analog manufactures to love. Based on original analog principles and techniques, paying tribute to the history, culture, and knowledge of the analog printing craft.

 

In this workshop, you discover letterpress printing and get an insight into all the steps needed to create a large size letterpress artwork. This will be a team effort! We will design a poster, set it up from a mix of lead and wood type, mix the color by hand, and finally print it on our Korrex Berlin-Spezial 1968 proofing press.
