The Hungry Workshop
It all begins when Simon and Jenna Hipgrave discovered a Heidelberg Windmill Platen circa 1970 that was quite malnourished and rusty. They have since rescued and cleaned him up, also making sure he is fed as much paper as possible. But all that paper had to go somewhere right? Right! And thus was born the Hungry Workshop.
Self-described as story tellers, Simon and Jenna take great care in producing engaging ideas with designs that have personality which are uniquely executed on our antique press. Â They guarantee that â€œwhatever your story may be, we can tell it.â€
Even though they donâ€™t ink the plates manually or feed each sheet by hand, every print run requires constant attention. Each sheet is inspected, with ink and impression adjustment to produce the unique tactile finish of letterpress.
They print both their own projects that are designed in house and projects for other creative people such as studios and agencies. And they are passionate for the craft of letterpress. This combined with their expertise and love of design, typography and illustration ensures that every project is infused with heart and soul.
