Printing demonstrations for primary education

first to sixth year

No time for a workshop? During a printing demonstration, pupils find out all they need to know about printing with lead type.

How are letters made and how do you turn letters into sentences. How do you prepare the text on the press and finally how do you print it.

Printing demonstrations on the Toppan press are free for pupils of primary education.

Would you like to try typesetting yourself? Then the workshop on ‘Cast, typeset and print’ is just right for you.

Practical details

All printing demos must be requested from the Museum at least one month in advance.
