Design Assembly is delighted to welcome back Wayne Thompson from Australia to present his full-day workshop ‘Type By Hand’ in three locations across New Zealand. Wayne is a type designer and principal of Australian Type Foundry and has over 100 typefaces to his credit.
With an emphasis on doing rather than watching, this unique workshop will take you on a journey through the world of hand lettering. Starting with some theory about humanist construction in type, it follows with inspiring examples and discussion. You will then be plunged into a series of drawing exercises designed to improve your understanding of character anatomy and interaction.

Also featured as part of this workshop – an exploration of different writing tools and an extended afternoon session where you create a finished piece under the direct instruction of Wayne. Participants will leave with new drawing techniques and a renewed enthusiasm and passion for typography.

This workshop is aimed at design professionals, students and anyone who wants to know more about handlettering and type anatomy.

No computers necessary – this workshop is entirely pen-on-paper.
