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 magic of traditional ticket writing with this hands-on workshop on brush lettering.
Brush lettering is experiencing a new renaissance with the popularity of hand lettering and brush pens, but the original brush letterers used to use a brush. Look back to the days of department store signage where all display signs were written quickly with a brush.
For beginners and experienced letterers alike, this four-hour class will cover the foundations of letterform construction using a paint brush and acrylic paint.
You’ll leave the workshop with:
- Some knowledge of the history of ticket writing and show card lettering.
- Improved brush lettering skills.
- A piece of work that demonstrates your ticket writing and brush lettering skills.
Carla’s love affair with the brush has inspired her to pass on the skill by running regular brush lettering workshops all over Australia with her mentor, former show card and ticket writer Barbara Enright.
