Free spirits - Le Cadratin, printing as it was

About this event :

Cadratin Atelier typographiqueShare in the atmosphere of an old fashioned printer’s workshop!

Le Cadratin was created in 1988 by Jean-Renaud Dagan, a printer with a desire to honour the traditional craft he learnt as an apprentice before technology stepped in. Working with Jean are a team of dedicated volunteers passionate about typography and the continuation of this craft for future generations and bringing joy to others.

After a brief overview of letterpressing and an explanation of the machines, we will create our own group project by hand, using lead characters, then printing on a manual press.

Each Free spirit participant will be asked (in advance) to provide a short phrase on what being a member of the IWC means to them.
