About the event

Spend an evening catching up with the fabulous Francesca - poet and letterpress printer - and skilled sculptor of wood Chris, as they take us through their distinct practices and approaches to working with traditional techniques in the modern world.

Poet and Letterpress printer Francesca talks about the printed word, movable type, and the importance of books and print through history to the present day.

She shares her love of print in a process essentially unchanged since Caxton's day explaining 'cut to the chase'. 'out of sorts' and 'mind your ps and qs'. 

Revolution, the novel, poetry and the internet - Francesca discusses all this and makes it seem easy as ABC.

Chris talks about his new sculptural work exploring the potential for the natural propperties of wood to make elaborate forms using some traditional and some modern techniques. 

He showcases building his new outdoor woodworking workshop, his love of restoring traditional tools and making videos of his practice for his YouTube channel - @masterwoodship.
