The Babyccino Kids ShopUp - PERSONALISED LETTERPRESS WITH PRICKLEPRESS

  • The ShopUp: Chelsea Town Hall (map)

Whether you're an avid stationery fan, or you simply want to have beautiful personalised tags, cards or place settings this Christmas, you will have a chance with a 15 minute slot with Pricklepress at this years Babyccino Kids ShopUp. Take a break from your Christmas shopping and seize the chance to do something creative and put a personalised touch on your Christmas. 

WHAT CAN I DO?

We are so excited to have invited Rachel from Pricklepress to run her popular letterpress workshop.  Pop along and find her in the cafe where you will be able to choose from a beautiful selection of hand-painted cards , tags and place settings (in an array of gorgeous colours) and personalise them as you like.

The letterpress is a beautiful old tactile craft. Each piece of card is fed through the press, piled, cut and enveloped by hand. The result is something you will instantly want to stroke, collect, frame or gift away. You will have the opportunity to see an old printer,  personalise something and of course have a go yourself! 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ALONG?

No need to bring anything along with you other than idea of initials, names or messages you would like to press. Rachel will guide you with everything, and you will go home with beautiful personalised Christmas stationery.

This workshop will be held in the Cafe area during the Babyccino Kids ShopUp.
