Discover The Garden Classroom’s outdoor, pop-up Little Green Library in parks and gardens across Islington this June. Our library bike will be out and about bringing books for under- fives and their families to enjoy. Settle down and enjoy reading together or listen to a treasured tale. You might even dress up as a story character and act out your own stories. Collect stamps at each venue, get creative with our free craft activities, and become a story explorer in story trails to discover the brilliance of books at your local green space.
In the last 10 years Letterpress has seen a massive resurgence but where do you start? How would letterpress fit into your practice? How do you print? What’s a chase, a quoin and what is locking up? Using an Adana Platen press, a HQ flat bed press and a Line-o-scribe cylinder press you’ll learn a little more than the basics. You will set wooden and lead type and print a small collection of type-based prints.
Limited places. £75 per person.
