William Amer sent in this video of his letterpress print shop, that was selected for the Sydney Film Festival, 2015.
Says William: “My claim to fame is that since 2009, there is finally a printer in the heritage village of Rockley, mid west NSW. And it is a Yorkshire born tradesman that’s done it. My wife’s historical research tells us that I am the only one, ever!
While I’ve reduced my student intake to only the most likely students, I still do train in the Art. Students need to go through a rigorous testing, as I did so many years ago, to learn from me.
Real Tradesmen & Women
I might even claim that being an original tradesman, my shop is truly first generation teaching, and not a University knock-off pretending to teach. I might even claim that my classes are comprehensive and can produce real tradesmen and women and I believe the only real school in NSW.
Amberly and Florent were the makers, Two Lands. I thank them continually for the time they spent making this video.”
