The Quarto Press

Visiting the Press

Printing History

We work by hand-setting metal and wood letters, a process dating back at least 500 years. Much of our equipment and type dates back 50 to 100 years.

Try Your Hand

Whenever possible we let visitors see the process in action, and let them have a go at it themselves.

If you are interested in getting more involved, we are always pleased to help with facities and supervision, although formal courses are not organised.

Art & Craft

Whilst the process is a historic craft, it is also widely used by artists, and we do both printing as a useful function to help local groups & charities, but also printmaking as an artistic activity.
