We’re thrilled to host Australian Type Foundry‘s Wayne Thompson for a Type by Hand workshop at Shillington New York this June.
With an emphasis on doing rather than watching, Wayne will introduce you to the world of expressive handlettering. After starting with an examination of different styles, you’ll explore ways to fit words together, make creative joins between letters, learn how to do flourishing and look at examples of various handlettering styles. You’ll also get the opportunity to test out various types of handlettering tools including ruling pens, broad-nib pens and brushes. Work on your own handlettered piece and Wayne will show you his process of sketching and refining using tracing paper. Go home with new techniques, inspiration and enthusiasm for expressive lettering.
Beginners welcome—it’s all about learning! This workshop is designed for participants who have a professional or personal interest in typography, art or design who would like to improve their lettering skills.
