Workshop details
We all love receiving a bespoke gift whether it’s for a birthday, wedding, new baby or anniversary. This course will show students how to design, develop and cut their own messages.

We will look at different type groups and how they can be combined to create unique designs. We’ll also explore some layouts that can be adapted for a variety of messages and how to add in some simple illustrative elements to enhance your designs.

Specific skills you will learn at the workshop

  • identifying the difference typeface families
  • drawing letters freehand so that they can be cut out
  • looking for ways of joining letters together seamlessly
  • using layout paper to develop ideas
  • how to develop a design using a shape, e.g. house, cat, heart to contain the words
  • how to develop a design using words and minimal images
  • finishing designs neatly
  • how to finish and present cut outs
