In 1991, I went to work for Alan Kitching as an apprentice. I had not long graduated from Norwich School of Art, with a portfolio full of letterpress work. AK never like the Apprentice tag, he always referred to me as his assistant; but an apprenticeship it was. I worked for him for nearly 5 years . . .
In 2016, we decided to join forces again and we established The New Typography Workshop, teaching and mentoring students about letterpress. After a few fruitful years including an ‘artist in residence’ & lecture series, the workshop closed in Early 2022.
