In the beginning of 2023, TYPA participated in an ERASMUS+ project, working with Tipoteca in Italy, _Arteria_Lab and the municipality of Évora. Each organisation hosted one international workshop, exploring methods to include print, letterpress and typography in adult education. We explored a whole range of processes, including calligraphy, linotype casting, letterpress print, even digital tools such as lasercut and CNC. We invited our friends such to teach and attend workshops in Estonia 🇪🇪, Italy 🇮🇹 and Portugal. 🇵🇹

From these three workshops, each organisation held its own local workshop, or Print Lab, testing the ideas, lessons and processes with local participants. All these fed into a final lesson plan design which is found here. These materials will become part of our adult education program and are available for all to download with open licence. If you have any comments or feedback on the tools, or if you have used them successfully, please let us know at
