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.

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.
