Perth: Type by Hand

With Wayne Thompson and The Articulate
With an emphasis on doing rather than watching, we will introduce you to the world of expressive handlettering. 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 type. The afternoon allows you to create your own unique handlettered piece under the direct instruction of Wayne and Tash.

EQUIPMENT: Paper and a Brush Pen is supplied, but please bring a broad-nib pen, some graphite pencils, a ruler and a rubber. More detailed info is on the rego page.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: This class is designed for participants who have a professional or personal interest in typography, art or design who would like to improve their lettering skills. Beginners welcome, it's all about learning!
