No need to book; drop in anytime, and stay as long as you like.
Bring the whole family along to help us make a series of giant murals on the People Powered Press – the largest letterpress printing press of its kind in the world.
We’ll be using Brico – just four different shapes cut into wooden blocks – to make some really, really big letters which will be put together as murals for display in a variety of public places.
You can help us move the dozens of shapes around in the press to create the letters, and to ink them up, and ultimately see the results of your work up on a wall somewhere around the Bradford district!
What to bring with you
- Clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting a little bit dirty, though we'll provide you with a fetching apron.
- If you have long hair, please bring something you can use to tie it back, and don’t wear anything too flowy, especially baggy sleeves, to avoid getting trapped in the press’s roller or dangling in the ink.
All proceeds from this workshop will be used to support the People Powered Press' work with community groups around the Bradford district, amplifying local voices and spreading words worth spreading.
