Join me in the Type Tasting studio for Open Studios this weekend

The Type Tasting studio is nestled on the edge of Dalston, East London, in an old Chocolate Factory with a pretty courtyard that feels like you’re no longer in London. You can find out more about Type Tasting, and get the inside scoop on the exciting events being planned with the London Design Festival later in the year (click here to see what we did last year). Take part in experiments and demonstrations in the studio, or talk about an idea you might have for an experiment. There is a sale on screen printed posters or you can book a place on the next Dalston Type Safari.

‘Thirteen Minutes with…’
Throughout the weekend the artists will be giving short talks and demonstrations.
Saturday 18th at 4pm: Thirteen Minutes with… Sarah Hyndman of Type Tasting in studio F7. Graphic Designer and Author. Sarah invites you to discover that there is More to Words than Meets the Eye with fun demonstrations and experiments. These give insights into the ‘secret’ messages hidden in words that affect your thoughts, feelings and even your experiences.
