What you'll do

You will be welcomed in my studio in Voorburg, which is close to The Hague. We will introduce ourselves briefly and I will explain more in depth about Letterpress printing and where we are. I will show you the machines, wood and lead type (type is letter), paper and ink. After the introduction, it will be hands on! We will be printing postcards using the old machines. We will use wood and lead type to create a desired text for the card. I also have ornaments and ancient zinc plates with gorgeous prints of Amsterdam for you to use. Coffee, tea, sparkling water, lemonade and sweets will be served. At the end of the two hour workshop you wil have an idea of what Letterpress printing is all about. You will have set text, mixed ink and used the presses. Postcards will need to dry and can be picked up after 24-48 hours or sent to you, no problem. I'm looking forward to sharing my passion with you!

Eva

Hi! I'm Eva and the proud owner of 'In My Back Yard', a Letterpress studio ánd adjacent to that 'sleep IMBY' an Airbnb location that sleeps up to five people. All located downtown Voorburg. The ancient Letterpress technique got me in the United States where we’ve lived for a few years. The old machines were once used to print newspapers and pamphlets and are nowadays used to print wedding invitations, birth announcements, postcards, posters, etc. I work on assignment, sell postcards in local shops and was a proud partaker in the LetterPress Workers event in Milano in June 2019. I host workshops and teambuilding sessions, because I love to share what I do. Letterpress is Love. Flexibility & other options **** contact me if you’d like to attend a workshop on ‘non-listed days’. I might be able to make it happen! ***
