The wonderful Coburg based Old School New School will be setting up a workshop space at our Melbourne SS14 markets! There will be three classes held over the two days, perfect for all skill levels! Old School New School is both an exciting place for Design Learning and a Design Studio (Old School Press) that deliberately sets out to challenge mainstream design education. No corporate speak, everything about Old School is personalised, and centres around the learner and teacher. The innovative little School's approach has changed the paradigm of design education by bringing design back to what it should be about. People.
Old School New School: Copperplate Lettering for Digital Natives
This hands on workshop introduces you to the foundation skills of Copperplate Lettering. Copperplate uses pen and ink, plus a sharp pointed nib instead of blunt chiseled nib to create beautiful lettering. It is the original core skill that traditional professional letterers, ticket writers, signpainters, and writers of brush script started with when the art of hand lettering was king.
Friday, 17 October 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Book here.
Saturday, 18 October 2014 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Book here.
