You are invited to our Type Tasting Christmas Open Studios Weekend on 25th & 26th November from 11am-5pm. The Chocolate Factory N16, Farleigh Place (off Farleigh Road), London N16 7SX.

There will be something experimental taking place in the Pop-up Lab. The studio will be full of all things typography—to look at and to buy. Including signed copies of Sarah’s books, limited edition screen prints, and letters to hang on your Christmas tree.

Chat to Sarah about an event or workshop for your organisation, either as a Christmas jolly or some teambuilding inspiration to see in the New Year. This year she has created Type Tastings for adidas, British Academy, Bumble Bizz, D&AD, The Fragrance Forum, Monotype at Design Thinkers Toronto, the V&A for the London Design Festival, Wellcome Collection, and WGSN.

Private view evening
Type Tasting supporters are invited to the private view on Friday 24th November from 6.30pm-9.30pm, please RSVP sarah(a)typetasting.com

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.
