Hamilton Letterpress Font Making Workshop!

The Font Diner has teamed up with the world-renown Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin to host a letterpress font making workshop and we couldn’t be more excited!

The workshop starts off with a Friday night letterpress printing party at Hamilton where you’ll print and scan your own specimen with wood type from Hamilton’s amazing collection to use as your font reference for the workshop.

The following day we’ll be totally focused on vector letter tracing/drawing basics using our scanned reference and our goal is to help you complete a set of 26 capital letters by the end of the day. On our third day together, we’ll switch gears and spend the day importing your letters, spacing, kerning and generating your first font and you can enjoy the rest of the afternoon to print your own letterpress souvenir specimen poster from the original source.
