Description

'A Type Thing' is a new quarterly lettering meet-up presented by Melbourne based lettering collective, General Type Co, in collaboration with Work-Shop. 

The aim of these meet-ups is to bring type enthusiasts from all backgrounds together to exchange ideas, knowledge and share their love of letters. Each themed session will be hosted by a guest artist, who will give a short presentation on their progression as a lettering artist, sharing tips, tricks and tools of the trade, and presenting an activity/ challenge for guests to participate in. 

With an emphasis on 'learning by doing' and hands-on experimentation, a range of art materials will be provided for each session. If you have any favourite materials that you're working with, we encourage you to bring those along to experiment with and share with others. 

Whether you're a practising lettering artist, graphic designer, or simply have a 'thing' for letters, we encourage you to come along for a fun night of lettering and learning with like-minded people.

A TYPE THING #3

We’re excited to have one of Australia’s most prominent calligraphers, Moya, hosting the third instalment of A Type Thing, presenting the theme ‘Flourishings’. 

Moya’s work has been featured on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, in calligraphy magazine Dasherie, on corporate stationary for national and international companies, on logos for small business, an even on personalised chocolates for high-end retailers. She works regularly with stationary design studios and letterpress studios around Australia.

In this session, Moya will show her body of work, answer questions on calligraphy, and also explore materials and techniques involved before launching into exercises for everybody to create impressive flourishing.

You can check out more of Moya's work on Instagram @moyagraphy

The workshop space is a little basic with a slightly uncomfortable setting but the lighting is good. Moya was lovely and spent time going through a few different things as well as her background; it was great as a taster or as tips for someone that already knows the basics.
