Wai-te-ata Press Study

As a teaching laboratory, Wai-te-ata Press is integrated into undergraduate and postgraduate courses and workshops to explore the real-life practices of historic and contemporary information technology and design. Whether you are in media studies, architecture and design, history, English, languages, theatre or music, hands-on experience in the printery will give you a deep understanding of the role of technology in society and culture.

Visual communication design students can attend customised workshops and the Press also offers internships for publishing students. Throughout the year, letterpress printing and bookbinding courses for community and professional designers can be organised. Please contact The Printer for more information.

Innovative projects include online exhibitions. In 2013, for instance, INFO536 students synthesized their prior bibliographic research about a pre-twentieth-century book, and published a narrative about its production, distribution, reception, and preservation using the website building tool Weebly. Here's a taster of several of these 'biographies of a book.'
