Masterclass: Art of Handlettering With Sarah Maxey

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Thu 30 Jun ’16, 10:00am – 3:00pm


Yoobee School of Design Wellington, Level 2/2 Bunny Street, Welllington, Wellington


All Ages

Handlettering is a special discipline. Its most exciting potential is when the physical form of lettering carries as much intent as the text itself—the idea of ‘type as image’.

Sarah Maxey is a graphic artist. Her distinctive work has graced publications worldwide, including the New York Times and many literary books. She worked for Bloomsbury Publishing in the mid-nineties, and has run her own studio since. She has won numerous awards, most recently the 2011 Purple Pin, the highest graphic design accolade in her native New Zealand and a Certificate of Excellence from the International Society of Typographers.

Instruction will be given in techniques and specialist materials, with plenty of chance for playful experimentation. The workshops are designed to encourage your inner handlettering artist and will include collaborative type drawing. You will come away with:
- New techniques for creating hand-made type
- Knowledge of materials
- At least two finished pieces of work.
