In the letterpress workshop and offset printshop, students set type with lead and wooden letters in black&white and colour. They can also print proofs on cylinder presses. The workshop is primarily used by students of the Graphic Design Department, but is also accessible to students from other departments. Workshop manager Joos Wiersinga assists students with typesetting. Requirements: 3 hours' time and a good dose of enthusiasm.
The workshop can also be followed on Facebook: Zetterij Letterpress Workshop.
