The Royal Press Workshop is an initiative to preserve the art of letterpress by encouraging a new breed of artisans to be part of this movement. Our workshop is also designed to cultivate an appreciation towards our local design history through letterpress printing.
We are one of the oldest polyglot letterpress printing museum in the world. With a collection of lead types and wood blocks of different languages; Roman alphabets, Chinese characters, Jawi and Tamil scripts, we have printed more than 70 years of social history and culture in Melaka.
All proceeds of the workshop will go entirely to the preservation of our machines and building restoration in Melaka. A minimum of 4 participants is required. Maximum 6 participants per session.
