Adana Workshops

If you’ve recently become the proud owner of an Adana but you’re feeling a little lost on how to progress, we have just the workshop for you!

Bring your Adana to our studio for a one-to-one day with the pressman. Chris the pressman will run through the basics of owning an Adana from basic maintenance, through to typesetting skills and locking up a chase. The rest of the day will be devoted to printing, so bring along a mini project – business cards perhaps - and get stuck into your new passion!

We are also happy to come to you if you prefer. Please enquire.

Prices start from £140 for one day at our studio, on a day to suit you. Materials and refreshments included although lunch is not. Please bring along a packed lunch or we’ll be happy to direct you to a local hostelry.

Contact us to discuss your requirements.

"I recently went on a one day letterpress and typesetting course with smallprint and thoroughly enjoyed it. Chris is an excellent teacher and the facilities are second to none. The price was extremely reasonable too! If you're wanting to learn the basics of letterpress, i can't recommend them highly enough."
