The Distillery – Open Studio 2017

On Friday Night, Alice and I went to the Distillery, a letterpress studio. According to the event's page it's the first event in AGDA's After Hours series. When I RSVP'd there was the option of uploading artwork to get letterpressed. I uploaded one of my drawings and whipped up a quick logo for Craft Club. When we had got there we found that my drawing had already been used – not sure how to feel about it.

They have a few machines there, Heidelberg presses, a proofing press and another one that does foiling. The first GIF is of the Heidelberg. It prints up to A4. In the second GIF is Alice printing an A3 poster on their proofing press. We moved onto the wall after printing.
