Residents of the City of Stonnington will have a rare opportunity to learn the age old printing technique from an expert in this feild. Help continue the Letterpress tradition at the Fire Station Print Studio as one of the last remaining institutions who have this facility. By upgrading its current traditional and historic equipment, FPS can become the premier resource for LetterPress in this hemisphere. Allan Dabscheck with half a century of expertise in this field has generously offered to share his knowledge in this intensive 16 day program to grant others the opportunity to become established Letterpress artisans.
Citizens of Stonnington will have a unique opportunity to learn an age old skill from this master printer prior his retirement. Onwards, this will benefit the community as a new generation of LetterPress Printmakers will form, emerging from these classes in the heart of Stonnington. The opportunity for these trainees to futher impart this knowledge, on a voluntary or paid basis exists at FPS with the use of what will be Australia's most recently and comprehensively upgraded LetterPress print studio. This project ensures that Stonnington plays a pivotal role in continuing the LetterPress tradition as a valid and relevant technique.
