WTSP 2017 – Lettering and Typography Workshop

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Lettering and Typography Workshop

In this one day workshop, students will explore lettering and typography through a wide assortment of hands on approaches. Beginning with letters sourced from popular magazines, newspaper clippings, consumer packaging and typography specimen-catalogues, students will springboard from these materials to hand alter and create new designs. In this class we will explore cut and paste methods in conjunction with drawing, brush lettering and pen techniques to create individualized and expressive letter-forms. Think of punk rock flyers, 1980’s zines, DIY lettering, Dada collage and a dash of sign painter script as our inspirational aesthetic. * Please bring in hard copy materials to class (popular magazines, vintage magazines, newspaper clippings, consumer packaging, everything and anything.) If you find it online print it out on an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper. Choose letter-forms that you find visually interesting or inspirational.

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
