Typism Gold Coast Workshops: September 28–29
We have organised two days of hands-on workshops with Typism speakers past and present. All workshops run from 2 pm until 6 pm and will be held at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.
All materials are supplied and the classes kept deliberately small so you get plenty of hands-on tuition from your workshop presenter.
Tickets are ($67 / $47) and you can take one workshop on Thursday and one on Friday.
Learn the secrets of historical lettering with this hands-on workshop on Art Deco lettering and typography.
Popular in the roaring 20s and 30s, this style embodies the glamour, luxury and exuberance of the Great Gatsby Era.
For beginners and experienced letterers alike, this four-hour class will cover the foundations of lettering and briskly segue into dramatic uppercase letterforms, unexpected ligatures, geometric scripts, and ornamentation.
You’ll leave the workshop with:
- A lettering piece that is both fresh and on-trend (while still being rooted in history) and ready for its Instagram close up.
- A general knowledge of this glitzy time in design history as well as a list of resources to continue learning about Art Deco typography and design.
- All the skills you need to infuse the rest of your work with some Jazz-Age glamour.
