So, you’ve taken one of our Intro/Beginner Hand Lettering Classes and now find yourself rather obsessed with drawing letters. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Join the many others who have been politely nudging me to offer an opportunity to push your skills further with our Advanced Hand Lettering Class, now available to those who have already taken our Intro/Beginner Hand Lettering Class (in Sans Serif, Serif, Script styles).

In this advanced class, students will utilize their skills learned in our Intro/Beginner Hand Lettering Class and explore ways that letters come together in creative word formations, layouts and multi-word designs. We will cover typographic concepts such as leading, kerning, tracking, ligatures, script connections and decorative flourishes.

Supplies:

  • Each student will receive a hand-lettering pack that’s stocked with pens, paper and Ladyfingers Letterpress swag.


Instructor: 

Illustration and lettering has been a lifelong passion for Torsone, a BFA graduate of Parsons School for Design and Co-Founder of Ladyfingers Letterpress. His obsession with lettering began when he realized he was spending 96% of his life scrolling through endless lists of fonts on his computer when the answer was right in front of him in the form of paper and a pen. Constantly frustrated with his digital compositions lacking the personality that matched the tone of his work, he opted for the hand-lettering life and never looked back. He is responsible for all the design and lettering that comes out of the Haus of Ladyfingers, so if anything offends you, you can most likely blame him.

Demand for his workshops has brought him all over the place, including Iceland, Miami and California. Now held in the comfort of his studio at Ladyfingers Letterpress in Colorado Springs, his hand-lettering classes attract folks from all over the country (and world!) from all different skill levels and artistic backgrounds. He's made stuff for famous people and national brands and his work has been seen in famous publications and has received a bunch of awards and stuff, but his crowning achievement is his Poop Font that is on display in the bathroom at Ladyfingers.

Registration is non-refundable or exchangeable. Additional supplies available for purchase at Ladyfingers Letterpress. All students receive a 10% discount on all in-store purchases on the day of the workshop.
