Saturday 15th November 2014 :: 10am–5pm
With Wayne Thompson
Hosted by Hunter Design School
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.
COST: $220.00 inc GST
ABOUT THE TUTOR – WAYNE THOMPSON
Fascinated by letters since he was a teenager, Wayne began with rub-down lettering and worked as a signwriter, photographer and journalist before settling into the design profession in the late 1980s. After 17 years as Art Director in several advertising agencies, Wayne now works full-time as a type designer and teacher. Wayne’s long term aims are to always learn more about typography, and hopefully contribute an Aussie flavour to the world of type design.
