Louisa Hare’s poster workshop: participants bring a text (100 words max) of their choice for hand setting with metal type, locking it into a chase to print from, after having first made a simple image or decoration to complement the text using the medium of lino cutting. Participants take away a poster of their own making, plus their lino blocks.
Louisa Hare set up a small publishing business nearly thirty years ago that perfectly reflected her dual interest in literature and the fine arts, having studied both. From the outset Louisa has always used letterpress: the time-honoured, hands-on, direct method of printing from blocks and metal type. Best known for the flagship range of internationally distributed Shakespeare postcards, Louisa’s business, First Folio Cards, continues to flourish.
