Workshop: Yeats Sisters Letterpress with Mary Plunkett


Sunday 26 November, 10:00-16:00
Max 6 people

Participants will work with graphic artist Mary Plunkett and the Museum’s collection of type and Albion printing press to make a small book in the tradition of the Cuala Press of the Yeats Sisters. As a group, participants will each set a paragraph of type by hand, learn how to lock it up on a press, proof and print the pieces together to produce a small edition book.

Each participant will receive a copy to take home. This one-day workshop will give participants a little taste of the craft and expertise put into each of the books and broadsides produced by Elizabeth Yeats and her associates at the Dun Emer and Cuala Press.
