Workshop: Type Tasting at Cass Art Islington
Sunday September 1st, 3-5pm
Cass Art Islington
Prior booking necessary via the Cass Art website, maximum group size 8 people.
Experience: all levels (16+)
Take part in a Type Tasting creative typography workshop at Cass Art Islington hosted by Type Tasting founder Sarah Hyndman. Get away from the computer to get your hands dirty experimenting with typography and exploring its expressive qualities. We will explore the topic of ‘creative London’ through typography, mark making and materials. At the end of the session you are invited to submit your work to be considered for inclusion in Type Tasting with the London Design Festival at the V&A.
Tactile exploration, trial and error, experimenting with materials allow us to think creatively and fully develop an idea rather than taking a short cut to a slick and polished result. Often it’s the happy accidents that lead to the most interesting outcomes.
Type Tasting training takes participants back to their creative roots through play and exploration. They give experienced designers an imagination refresher and novices an accessible introduction to typography.
