On the last Wednesday 19 of January, we organized and hosted a calligraphy workshop, lectured by the visiting Design teacher and Ph.D. researcher Maíra Woloszyn.
A one-day workshop where participants created their own tools and were introduced to the “foundational hand”.
This workshop was geared to beginners and intermediate art and design students alike, with a special emphasis on the Master’s students — as they will soon begin their type design class. As such this workshop is a nice complimentary training on letter shapes and general typographical composition. Make sure to see the highlights from the workshop process and some of the results in the Type Design course website: https://typedesign.fba.up.pt/results-from-the-calligraphy-workshop/
