Tailored Courses

We host regular workshops from our studio space within Banks Mill Studios, Derby. Our popular workshops are for beginners and more experienced printers alike. We have recently upgraded the space, allowing groups of up to 6 people at a time to work. To view our current workshops diary and book your place, visit our Eventbrite page.

"Just perfect! I wanted a one-on-one course and couldn't have picked a better company to introduce me to all things 'letterpress'. Both Chris and Hannah were warmly welcoming ... Chris is wonderfully patient and knowledgeable ... I couldn't have found a better company and I highly recommend The Smallprint Company'."
— A-M Hembrough, Staffs

"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."
— Emma Pass, Derbyshire
