Letterpress workshop: Day one

I've been at a letterpress workshop today, at St Brides Library near Fleet Street (London). I've set type - picked it up quite quickly, memorising where each letter is in the type tray as well (they're not laid out a-z). Also did a bit of lino cutting, useful practice for when I use the lino I purchased a few weeks ago. And used two different printing presses.

Honestly don't think I'd ever seen St Paul's cathedral before today...
This is where I set my type.
Spot my typos!
And then corrected...
Arcade Fire letterpress well.

Back for more tomorrow.
