Lettering Workshop (4,5h) Beginner's level Helsinki

5 apr 2018 17:30 - 22:00

Rõõm, Helsingegatan 17, 00500 Helsingfors

Beginner level

During a Lettering Workshop we draw letters and words. Maybe you need a logo, a personal business card, a blogg banner? Maybe you want to make a print for your living room wall or design your own birthday cards. Or maybe you just want to create ordinary or extraordinary letters by hand with a pencil.

It is called lettering, instead of writing letters you draw letters.

A Lettering Workshop contains talk about:
- material and tools
- letter anatomy
- different ways to collect inspiration
- different methods to create your own letters

Our focus will be on drawing as much as possible: learning by doing. I will present fun and creative assignments where you can develop your lettering from simple letter sketches to letterings with quotes.

Some of the assignments are:
- draw one letter in as many ways as you can
- draw different styles and fonts
- draw your name
- develop your own project

All material you need for the workshop is included in the ticket price. So is coffee/tea and snacks. You can bring your own food if you want something more to eat, we will have a shorter food break (about 20 min).

I am Sofie Björkgren-Näse and I am leading the workshop. I am a freelance lettering artist with my own company Fia Lotta Jansson Design (www.fialottajansson.com).

This lettering Workshop is held at the cozy and inspiring gallery/shop of Rõõm in Kallio (www.roomhelsinki.com).

25% VAT is included in the ticket price.
We have a maximum of 10 seats. We need a minimum of 5 participants for the workshop.
