Working With Words: Language, Structure + Expression

  • TCDC Bangkok 622 Sukhumvit Road Bangkok, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, 10110 Thailand (map)

with Catherine Dixon
Available slots : -

An opening brief theoretical and historical overview sets the scene for a hands-on workshop exploring the expressive potential for the layout of language using the vehicle of poetry as an experimental playground. The workshop is about enjoying words in a very visual sense but is no mere exercise in self-indulgence, rather an opportunity to engage with techniques useful in enriching approaches to typography in our more everyday contexts.


Workshop equipment requirements (per person)
1. 2 or 3 large sheets (A2 is ideal) of paper thin enough to trace through
(ideally so-called ‘layout paper’ though not ‘tracing paper’)
2. Graphite pencil (B or HB)
3. Pencil sharpener
4. Rubber
5. Ruler (at least 30cm though longer ideal)
