Thursday 24th January marked the official launch of Thin Ice Press. We celebrated the transformation of a neglected room into a working letterpress studio surrounded by staff, students, guests, and many letterpress printers who have helped us on our journey so far. Check out the launch event and past milestones, events and updates on our blog.
Our current focus is to provide a historical introduction to printing and ways to directly engage with letterpress. Members of the university can join our printing society (PrintSoc) and members of the public can check out our events page for more information.
Thin Ice Press has produced work for events within the the Department of English and Related Literature, conferences, collaborations between PrintSoc and student magazines, and facilitated independent creative work from visiting artists.
