About me

jbletterpress is a letterpress workshop based in Gipsy Hill south London, run by John Bradley, creating artworks and teaching this craft in workshops using a collection of wood type, lead type and blocks and hand-printing using an Albion platen press


Workshops are run regularly at the weekends for one or two people at a time. I teach the art of letterpress printing by hands-on experience and experimentation

Presses & equipment

I use an Albion platen press, which must be about 120 years old, to make prints using my collection of large wood type and lead type. Recently I purchased a lovely 1960s Heidelberg automatic press that I hope to start using in the near future
