“I had never understood why people hold such a passion for typography. Now I see why!” Jessica

“Left me more confident in my awareness of typography and it’s vast importance within design. It was fun and an incredibly thought provoking session with an excellent variety of group activities to consider how typography can correlate to our different senses, whether we are conscious of it or not. I am continuing to refer back to my tasting notes. It has opened my eyes to typography and was a fantastic experience” Chantelle
