Visitors to Walthamstow’s William Morris Gallery can try their hand at traditional printing techniques this month when it hosts a free event as part of the Museums at Night festival.

Typographic artist Kelvyn Smith will be appearing at the gallery on Thursday from 6.30pm until 10.30pm.

Under Mr Smith’s expert guidance, visitors will use traditional type to create prints of extracts from Morris’ essay Art and Socialism.

They will be encouraged to display the resulting prints where they live, at work or out in the community.

The gallery, which is owned and run by Waltham Forest council, got the chance to host Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop after winning the public voting stage of Connect10, a competition that teams up museums with contemporary artists to run an event during Museums at Night.

The event is free and booking is not necessary.
