Letterpress Masterclasses – Large-Format Printmaking

Feel Again Masterclasses

FEEL Inspired AGAIN – Experience the beauty and tactility of large-format letterpress printmaking.

Extend your creativity capabilities, and learn to produce exclusive letterpress prints of your illustration and creative works.

These classes are ideal for illustrators, artists and designers seeking to develop new skills, featuring the exciting bonus of developing your works with unique commercial potential.


Discover the beauty of two very special proofing presses – the Korrex Berlin and Asbern AD-1.

Capable of producing letterpress prints up to 520x420mm, you will experience the nature of presses originally designed to produce quick ‘proof-copies’, but today are highly valued for their artistic capabilities.

Inspired by the heritage equipment repurposed for the future, the Masterclass explores components of modern printmaking:

  • Health and safety
  • Artwork digitisation techniques
  • Relief platemaking with photopolymer
  • Ink mixing with rubber based inks
  • Paper selection: cotton and pulp stocks
  • Letterpress platen, foil, and proofing presses


Masterclass sessions are instructed by senior printmakers of The Distillery in small intimate groups.

No prior experience is necessary – just bring your passion to experience a rare and exclusive method of letterpress printmaking. Alongside like-minded creatives and freshly curated tunes in The Distillery’s Crown St studio, you can look forward to an inspired and creative afternoon!

Large-format letterpress classes are seldom offered in Australia – we recommend you book early to secure your place.
