Swedish type master Letterboy is heading back to Perth for a new series of workshops for letter enthusiasts.

These workshops will teach you the basics of calligraphy and hand-lettering.

It covers everything from script to gothic styles. Drawing by hand gives artists and designers an understanding of why and how letters are built and also to get a genuine feeling that most of the time gets lost when using computers.

This workshop fits the beginner and people who have dabbled in calligraphy and hand-lettering in the past.

Registrations are now open here.
