[BKARTS] Letterpress workshop in UK



The Alembic Press is occasionally able to make its facilities available for 
printing or bookbinding workshops, and is repeating the very successful 
pattern of the last four years by offering a five-day letterpress workshop in 
2003.

The Press is located in the south of England, some 50 miles west of London, 
and eight miles south of Oxford. It has a spacious printshop situated in a 
thirteenth century stone barn, and is equipped with an iron hand press, 
treadle platens, cylinder proof presses, table-top platens and a wide range 
of metal and wood typefaces. There is a maximum of four students, allowing 
each to have individual instruction, yet work at their own pace, and explore 
their own interests, should they wish. The workshop can also include a slide 
lecture on early printed books, or a visit to a nearby printing or Arts & 
Crafts museum, or an introduction to casting with Monotype equipment, 
depending upon the preference of participants.

The course will be Monday 12 May to Friday 16 May 2003 and runs each day from 
10am to 4pm. 

The course will be repeated Monday 7 July to Friday 11 July 2003 

The fee for either course is 150 (or US$225) per person, inclusive of 
tuition, basic materials, tea/coffee and lunch.  A workshop will only run if 
at least three people register. To reserve a place on either course, please 
send a deposit of 30 or US$50 (cheque payable to Claire Bolton).  The 
deposit is refundable until 12 March for May course, or 7 May for July 
course, or if the workshop is cancelled. 

To check on availability, please contact Claire Bolton, The Alembic Press, 
Hyde Farm House, Marcham, Oxon OX13 6NX, England or telephone 44+(0)1865 
391391 or e-mail AlembicPrs@aol.com
