Type Camp Coming to Regina!

The pointed pen is known for simple scripts, serifed Roman forms, bold flourishes, and even gritty scrawls. This workshop will help beginners and experienced letterers alike to learn the tools and the rules for this old-is-new-again device. You will gain a basic understanding of how the pointed pen works, in the famous Type Camp learning style, all while creating your own script alphabet. We’ll even develop choice words that you can digitize later on your own.

Class starts at 10.00am and ends at 5.00pm, with a 60 minute lunch break in the middle.

In addition to getting your own pack of tools to take home, we will also provide: tips on working with dip pens, problem solving for those pesky letterforms, oodles of practice sheets, exemplars to copy, sources for even more supplies, and loads of more recommendations. Type Camp provides all the materials, so just show up and we’ll take care of the rest.
