More Type By Hand

More Type By Hand



Instructed by Wayne Thompson of Australian Type Foundry, this three hour session will take you on a journey through the world of handlettering. With an emphasis on doing rather than watching, you will start with some theory of humanist construction in type, followed by inspiring examples and discussion. You will then be plunged into a series of drawing exercises designed to improve your understanding of character anatomy and interaction. Attendees will leave with new drawing techniques and a renewed enthusiasm for handlettering, and typography in general.

This workshop is aimed at design professionals who want to know more about handlettering and type anatomy as an aid to their work.

No computers necessary, this workshop is entirely pen-on-paper. Paper supplied, please bring some broad-nibbed felt-tip markers, Artlines, Sharpies or whatever you like to draw with.
