Thinking With Your Hands

October 4, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - October 12, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

with Cyrus Highsmith

This hands-on workshop helps you explore different ways of drawing, making, and seeing letters.

In this two-week workshop (two Wednesdays and Thursdays in a row, starting on October 4), you’ll learn how letters can be drawn in many different ways. Cyrus Highsmith’s approach is based on the importance of white space and sensitivity to shapes, a method he applies to type design as well as image making of all kinds. For Highsmith, “thinking with your hands” is a way of seeing the world. This workshop will be a messy, hands-on, computer-free exploration of drawing, making, and thinking about letters.
