Maker Difference: pop-up letterpress studio

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

Maker Difference is one of the events we picked out in our London Design Festival highlights blogpost from last week so I decided to pop along to check it out yesterday afternoon.

The event, organised by Cockpit Arts And SORT (The Society of Revisionist Typographers) sees a shop premises just off Carnaby Street transformed into a pop-up letterpress studio in which visitors can print onto a small notebook which they can keep – thus seeing how a small printing press works. 

There are also two free letterpress workshops everyday (at noon and 4pm daily) this week. You can book a place online at sortdesign.com (limited availability). 

And SORT are also displaying and selling a range of their cards, cotton tote bags and books that they have, of course, printed themselves.

Here are some photos of the space – and of my note-book printing experience:

Maker Difference runs to the end of this week at:

3 Lowndes Court
Newburgh Quarter
London W1F 7HD

11am-6pm, Tues & Wed, Fri& Sat
12pm-8pm, Thurs; 12pm-2pm, Sun
