Looking for Something?
ffowndri is a not-for-profit open access art studio in North Wales. We offer a range of opportunities to learn and use the studio. Our studio is focused on the revival of heritage arts and crafts including letterpress, linocut printing, bookbinding, paper marbling and calligraphy. In the future we hope to expand this further to other allied and related crafts such as chalk board and sign writing.
Half of our studio is dedicated to the restoration and use of old printing presses. We are passionate about preserving as much of the old equipment as we can and educating others in their use.
We welcome visitors to the studio but please let us know before coming

ACCESS & MEmbership
We love people using the studio and socialising with others when they are there. If you would like to join them and us at the studio and have experience in any of our crafts we have a variety of access options available including day passes, 5 day passes, monthly passes and annual membership.
Introduction workshops provide a great start for people wanting to create with letterpress but to master the craft support will be needed. We hold 3 hour bookable sessions for one on one and one on two tutoring. At these sessions we will provided further teaching and support you with creating your work and projects.
Newcomers to letterpress are welcome to undertake assisted sessions without attending any other workshop but more sessions will be required to build up the skills.
We currently only offer assisted sessions for letterpress but hope to expand this to the other crafts we teach at the studio, in the future.
