Saturday 7 May 2022, 10am – 5pm.
This is where you can dive in and get a little bit inky with our live printing events led by master letterpress machinist Graham Judd of Inkiana Press and woodblock artist Hamish Oakley-Browne of Te Kowhai Print Studio. Have a go at rolling a brayer and putting some muscle behind the lever of an antique printing press. Take away your very own hand-printed calico patch, bookmark or purchase unique, pre-printed merchandise from our artists.
