2 hour workshop
When and Where
17th March 2.00 - 4.00pm at The Jewish Museum, London
Part of Designs on Britain at the Jewish Museum, 19 October 2017 - 15 April 2018.
Discover how pioneering Jewish émigré designers from continental Europe radically transformed British design with their knowlege of Modernism.
Guided tour: First you'll take a fascinating tour of the Designs on Britain exhibition, where you can see some of the greatest designs by Hans Unger, FHK Henrion and Dorrit Dekk
Try Brush Lettering: Designing a typeface is infinitely harder than it looks. The ones we use every day are popular because they are technically brilliant - the simpler they look the more skill it takes to get them right. In this one and half hour workshop, Shoshana Bratton of Shoshy Cadoodle will introduce you to the key techniques of brush lettering. Explore how letters are formed and try your hand at developing a style of your own. Brush lettering is freer and more improvised than designing a font for print, but you'll be using the same principals to form words with a mix of technique and creative fun. You'll leave with brush lettering skills and a new respect for the typefaces we see around us every day!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
About your host, London Craft Club
London is a hub of creativity, culture, and of course, craft, but it’s also a terrible time thief. London Craft Club founder, Sonia, used to be a member of an awesome little group called Crafty Mums. They were creative, crafty, motivated and united in their interests – but only once in all the years of meeting did they do any actual crafting together! Work, commuting, parenting and all the rest seemed to leave no time to do all the fabulous craft projects that were possible.
Sonia really believed that crafting can be so good for you. Good for socialising, good for sustainability, good for creativity, good for happiness. So she started London Craft Club. It’s a friendly, fun place for you to easily try new crafts or pick up an old one in lots of different London venues. No fuss, no bother, you can rock up with just your lovely self and leave with an amazing finished piece you’ve made in just a couple of hours. We’ve got all the right kit, equipment and templates you could possibly need, so you can focus on enjoying the crafting and making.
Sonia studied Glass and Sculpture at University, and sews, knits and even welds from time to time. She also spend many years working in education in all sorts of unusual and informal environments, so London Craft Club has grown out of her twin love of teaching and making. Along the way she's also met some great craft teachers , and shared her teaching skills with them too.
So welcome to the Club – come along to one of the crafty sessions soon and get in on the craft thing!
