Creating the new workshop

Wednesday, 7 February 2018 19:50

It has long been a dream to house all the platen press in one place. 

The workshop at the bottom of the garden is a little crowded, and so I have started to move the presses into 

the garage. Hopefully once all the moving has been completed all three platen presses, 2 Albion’s & the Columbian

will be together, the added bonus being that the garage will have a wood burning/ multi fuel stove, so winters will 

be spent in the luxury of a heated space. 

The wooden shed ( half way down the garden) which used to house all the finished prints, will now move to the 1st floor in the garage.

The wood shed becoming display & framing shed.

So all in all three very distinctive place for me to potter about in.
