Our second stop on our Pointed Pen Canadian Tour (!) was Edmonton where we had 2 workshops. The awesome Sue Colberg, total friend of Type Camp and Shelley’s beloved Alcuin Society, set up a great space for us in a classroom in the Graphic Design area at the University of Alberta.
There was a mix of students and professionals, and even a few instructors (and University of Reading Type grads!) in the workshops. Some people picked it up quickly, some didn’t, but it didn’t seem to matter. Everyone tried and picked up a trick or two, and hopefully will be able to try it again in the future.
On Sunday, it snowed! Shelley & Xandra were super excited, yet as you can tell by the group photo below, the Sunday folks (all U of A Graphic Design students) were not so happy. They asked us to come back but told us to not have it be in January – we’ll see!
