Type By Hand Workshop

Over the weekend I attended the Type By Hand Workshop in Brisbane held by type legends Wayne Thompson & Matt Vergotis.  I had so much fun spending the day experimenting with broad nib pens, brush pens, ruling pens, chalk & ink and learning a variety of different hand lettering techniques.  I can’t recommend this workshop enough and I’m feeling so motivated to practice so that I can improve my hand lettering skills! Here are a few snapshots from the day:
