Type By Hand handlettering workshop
New South Wales, Sydney
A handlettering workshop to improve your understanding of type, with WAYNE THOMPSON and GEMMA O’BRIEN.
WAYNE is Type Designer and principal of Australian Type Foundry and has over 100 typefaces to his credit. GEMMA works in motion graphics and has earned a reputation for fine typography through her blog
For The Love of Type.
This unique workshop 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. Participants will leave with new drawing techniques and a renewed enthusiasm for handlettering, and typography in general.
These workshops are 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.
