This Type Camp weekend will focus exclusively on script lettering and calligraphy. We will be located in a charming B&B in Asheville, North Carolina, right in the heart of the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains.

By the end of the workshop, you will have a variety of script and calligraphic pieces that are both individual and collaborative. You will have challenged yourself in new ways and experimented with creative processes. The lettering and script skill set and procedural method can be applied to all kinds of future projects.

Never done this before? No problem! We promise that you don’t need to have had any previous experience in hand lettering. You will learn about and create a variety of lettering styles, letter skeletons, pointed brush lettering techniques, and detailed lettering refinements. Computers aren’t needed – this day is all analog.
