The Heidelberg Masterclass is another repeat of this brilliant class—see a review on p.20 of: http://www.theprintingmuseum.org.nz/assets/thjun18lr.pdf

If the Victoria Art Platen is the king of presses, then the prince is surely the Heidelberg Tiegel or Platen. In the US they call it the Windmill. One of the finest commercial presses ever made, there are still many around in New Zealand often at very affordable prices (the museum sometimes has some available for sale) when compared with overseas. Perfect for high quality, semi-professional production such as cards, invitations etc., with deep impression.

This comprehensive and intensive weekend workshop will be led by one of New Zealand’s foremost letterpress educators, award-winning printer, Graham Judd of GTO Printers in Auckland.

Topics will include maintenance and lubrication, makeready, mastering registration, inking, impression, paper handling, creasing, and diecutting. A range of printing exercises will be undertaken including business and greeting cards using both type and photopolymer plates. Participants will be able to supply their own business card designs which will be printed from photopolymer plates during the workshop.
