Prerequisites

Bring your favourite drawing tools (fine liners, markers, pencils, pens, white-out, a sketchbook, …). A laptop computer is required, we suggest the application Glyphs. However, if you work with any other font editor this is not an obstacle. The workshop crew will provide transparent paper and other stationery.

The workshop will start in the morning with breakfast, and will be continued throughout the day until the evening.

During the workshop we will also organise a visit to the National University Library, where many examples of calligraphy and print legacy, important for the Slovenian culture, are stored. Profesor Lucijan Bratuš will be our guide.

On Saturday we will start the day with a Type-walk through the old part of Ljubljana and in the afternoon we will show the work that has been done during the Type Days 2017 workshop with a public exhibition and a private party afterwards.
