2016 Fall Lettering Workshops

I’m back at Cooper Union in NYC this fall offering a bunch of new lettering workshops!

First, we’ll get things started with an introduction to Script Lettering. Then it’s on to some new material beginning with a two-day class on The Modern Letter, and another weekend seminar focusing on Hand-Lettered Logotypes. In November, I’m conducting a workshop on Flourished Script, before finishing out the year in December with Spencerian Lettering.

Registration is now open—hope you can join me!

2016 Spring/Summer Script Lettering Workshops
at The Cooper Union
30 Cooper Square, NY, NY 10003

It’s that time of year again! The folks at The Cooper Union must have had a lapse in judgement, because I’m back this spring and summer leading a bunch of script lettering workshops.

I’m kicking things off with a two-day Script Lettering course April 16–17. Then, we’ll loosen things up with some Freehand Lettering on April 30–May 1. Take one of these foundational classes before the Advanced Techniques in Script Lettering 4-day bender from June 20–23. Don’t sleep—registration is open now!

What’s Past Is Prologue
I first came across this line from Shakespeare’s The Tempest in Ben Rosen’s introduction to Jan Tschichold’s Treasury of Alphabets and Lettering. Although the scene for the original quotation is a little dark (spoiler alert: Antonio uses it to justify the murder he and Sebastian are contemplating), Rosen uses it support Tschichold’s notion that all good lettering has its roots in historical exemplars. I used the line as an excuse to try my hand at an albeit light-hearted semi-formal flourished script.
