TYPA’s specialist print and bookbinding course is designed for artists and educators who are looking to enhance their artistic skills and incorporate new techniques into their teaching practice. 

During the course, participants will create handmade Concertina books, complete with Cyanotype covers and either linocut pages or typesetting, depending on personal preference.

Price: 320 € per student

The course includes:

  • A tour of TYPA

  • Printing the book on historic machines
  • A full bookbinding day, with both concertina and single signature binding.
