Last week at the BizDojo we held Open Lab’s most colourful and hands-on skillshare to date! Presented by our Senior Designer and resident typography fanatic Mary Faber, this vibrant skillshare provided participants with an introduction to simple script lettering.
Those that joined in had the opportunity to practice lettering techniques themselves in a workshop-style session. We followed the ‘Crayligraphy’ reference guide by Tierney Studio, which teaches simple calligraphy using cost-effective Crayola pens (yes, just like the one’s you used when you were 5).
The session began with practicing simple stroke formations, and progressed to lowercase and then uppercase letterforms. Following this was some time to practice linking full words, and reflection on the progress each student had made.
As it was such a bright and enjoyable session we have been invited by the BizDojo to present this skillshare to their whole community. If you would like to join in the next one (it’s free!), details are below;
Tuesday 23 May, 12-1pm
