Doors open at the Quarto Press

The Quar­to Press at Coupar Angus will be open on Sat­ur­day 26th and Sun­day 27th Sep­tem­ber this year for Doors Open Day, from 10am until 4.30pm (last admis­sion 4pm).

The Quar­to Press has a range of machines (includ­ing type-cast­ing machines) and gad­gets to illus­trate bygone print­ing meth­ods and process­es used in the indus­try from its ear­li­est ori­gins over 500 years ago. The press is housed in a con­vert­ed 19th cen­tu­ry work­ers’ cot­tage and wag­on-shed.

Demon­stra­tions and expla­na­tions through­out the week­end, with the oppor­tu­ni­ty for every­one to have a go. Also present and demon­strat­ing will be a local craft spin­ner, weaver and dyer.
