The Penrith Museum of Printing has been conducting its Letterpress courses since 2005. 


Our courses are designed to give participants a very practical hands-on opportunity in this computer age to enter the world of letterpress printing. 

Classes are practical in nature and designed to provide participants with as much opportunity as possible to experience basic letterpress printing techniques that have been used in the printing trade down through the ages. So if you are interested in letterpress, you will definitely love one of our courses. 

To avoid disappointment, the museum committee wishes to advise those wanting to attend a course that places can not be guaranteed until full course fees are received via electronic transfer, or by other agreed means.
