‘A Type Thing’ is a new bi-monthly lettering meet-up presented by Melbourne based lettering collective, General Type Co, in collaboration with Work-Shop. 

The aim of these meet-ups is to bring type enthusiasts from all backgrounds together to exchange ideas, knowledge and share their love of letters. Each themed session will be hosted by a guest artist, who will give a short presentation on their progression as a lettering artist, sharing tips, tricks and tools of the trade, and presenting an activity/ challenge for guests to participate in. 

With an emphasis on ‘learning by doing’ and hands-on experimentation, a range of art materials will provided for each session. If you have any favourite materials that you’re working with, we encourage you to bring those along to experiment with and share with others. 

Whether you’re a practising lettering artist, graphic designer, or simply have a ‘thing’ for letters, we encourage you to come along for a fun night of lettering and learning with like-minded people.
