As part of our virtual wayzgoose and 125th anniversary celebrations of the St Bride Library, we are hosting an evening of short ten minute lectures on the theme of letterpress in the time of COVID.

We have invited eight speakers to share their experiences since the pandemic took told of the world in 2020. They will share what challenges they may have faced, how they have adapted to the way they work – or not – under lockdown, how creative they have felt in this time and what the pandemic and changing world around them has inspired them to produce. From group exhibitions and collaborations to printing daily reflections on the pandemic, this event celebrates the good that has come out of these troubled times.

With special thanks to Elizabeth Fraser (aka Frauhaus https://frauhaus.co.uk/) for the inspiration for this lecture.
