Lesson Details

Users are taken back to the origins of book printing, as they are guided through the operation of the Gutenberg Press, from typesetting and inking to operating the press by hand.

Our Printing Press lesson allows students to gain access to a two-pull press to and familiarise themselves with its form and function in ways difficult to achieve in real life. This hands-on, contextual learning activity consolidates theoretical and practical understanding of the printing process.
