About the event

Have you ever wondered how books were made before the invention of computers?

This exclusive workshop with Dawn Hollis, a renowned craftswoman at the Crail Press, will whisk you back to a time before computers.  Learn the art of letterpress printing and setting your movable metal type (you'll never forget the importance of "minding your p's and q's" again!).  Operate a vintage Adana press to create a set of stunning seaside postcards and a mini illustrated broadsheet celebrating the beauty of East Neuk of Fife.  No experience needed - Dawn will guide you every step of the way.  This is your chance to create unique keepsakes and become a printer for a day!
