Type Design Workshops?
0

If you had never formally studied the design of type (despite using it for 30+ years) and were looking for the best hands on workshop on the planet, where would you go? I've seen a few blog postings documenting these wonderful intensive weekend to weeks long type retreats.

Is there a compendium of them somewhere? Does Typophile have a "Worldwide Type Events" calendar hidden away somewhere?

I want to add that the goal would be to spend most of the time designing our own faces, not listening to lectures.

thanks

Good question. I'd be interested to know as well.

Are there any websites or online workshops which would guide me in type building. Have designed a type, need to detail it a little bit.
