Juniper Press @ The Bluecoat, Liverpool

Last week, I was fortunate enough to visit the newly formed Juniper Press, at The Bluecoat, in Liverpool. It was set up in the last few months by a group of people keen on letterpress, including my father! They actually have quite a few printing presses, but you could say these two Albion presses are the main focus...

Don't they look amazing against those windows?! The natural light in the studio is just fantastic.

Here's some snapshots from the day - you can see even my sketchbook got in on the woodblock action!

If you'd love to experience the studio for yourself, workshops are being offered throughout the year. If you'd like to find out more, comment here and I'll point you in the right direction!

  1. How fab Helen! Majestic machines, built to last, and go on and on- and great to see your sketch book getting the letterpress treatment!
    Wonderful windows - love all those circular portals - its brill when windows form part of the wall art!
    Well done to your dad and his fellow enthusiasts.
