Youth group from YMCA

Jenn Chapman with her Leader, Oma, brought over 10 students from the Teenage Group 'New Immigrants and Refugees' We created some very cool posters using 100 year old wood type. John emphasised that printmaking is a 500 year old technique and is how printing was done through out the world up until about 1970. 1970 is when the Homeprint collection was started. In this photo the table top Albion press (1872) was used.
