Coming up this week, starting on Thursday night, is the annual Cockpit Arts Summer Open Studios, and this year they’re celebrating their 30th birthday! As per usual, we’ll be opening our doors along with 170 other craftspeople and makers across the two sites. We’re busily putting the finishing touches to some new products that we’ll be launching at the event, plus we’ll have our full range of newly designed wedding stationery on display.
We’ll also be running live demonstrations of our 120 year old treadle platen printing press, on Friday 3rd June, Saturday 4th June and Sunday 5th June at from 1pm – 2pm and 3pm – 4pm. We’ll be showing off the techniques involved in letterpress printing along with how we run the venerable beast, plus visitors can have a go and pull their own keepsake print to take away. Anyone who has visited our studio will know that space is limited, so arrive early if you want to see the action properly!
