Learn the basics of calligraphy and hand-letering!
Sweden's Letterboy is coming to Perth! If you're interested in hand drawn type don't miss out on the opportunity to attend these very special workshops!
Currently based in Tokyo, Letterboy has spent many years perfecting the letter, and holds workshops for type enthusiasts around the world.
The workshops cover everything from script to gothic styles. Drawing by hand helps artists and designers to understand how and why letters are built, and creates an authenticity that is often lost when using computers. This workshop is suitable for beginners and people who have dabbled in calligraphy and hand-lettering in the past.
Saturday 13 August 2016: Workshop will be hosted by North Metro TAFE at 19 Aberdeen St, Northbridge
Sunday 14 August 2016: Workshop will be hosted by The Butcher Shop at 3/851 Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park
