John Jarrold Printing Museum

26 Feb

Goodness knows why it took me so long to check out the old John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich but I went for the first time during half term and learnt so much about letter press and the different stages involved in printing books, posters and publications!

The museum is right by the river and is within the original Jarrold building (Whitefriars).  It’s run by volunteers who have a wonderful passion and desire to continue spreading the legacy of hand printed type and it’s so important that these old methods are appreciated, especially as we take for granted how computers changed everything.

The museum is open every Wednesday morning from 9.30am – 12.30pm, you’ll meet all sorts of characters and printmaking enthusiasts as well as learn a great deal, all they ask in return is that you give a small donation!
