Printing demonstrations

During a printing demonstration, you will find out all about printing with lead type, how the letters are made and how to use them to make up sentences. You will see the typeset text being put on the press and printed off. Would you like to try typesetting and printing yourself? Then there is the workshop on ‘Casting and setting type and printing’.

For printing demonstrations on the Toppan press, groups pay €33 (up to 15 people).

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