Studio Catherine
Griffiths and

acknowledge the
encouragement of
Shabnam Shiwan to
begin the series,
five years on
from TypeSHED11.

A note on the
visual language
of typ gr ph c:
The right-angled
trapezoid and
two circles are
informed by the
floor plan of the
two studios, and
the plywood
remnants from
building. The
circles together
form the figure
8; the holes
match the number
of consonsants;
which in turn,
sets the number
of participants,
four in each
studio space.

#1.
A TYPE OF IMPROVISATION

with Catherine Griffiths

Friday 7th February, 2014
8 places
NZD $300 + GST per participant

This one-day workshop will offer the opportunity to use your voice: to explore and experiment within the disciplines of typography, graphic design and art practice. Participants will use letterform — not necessarily the written word — as the primary tool with which to improvise and construct meaning, whether social, political or cultural. While attention will be paid to detail, composition and aesthetic form, accidents will happen, serendipity will play out, and risks taken.

A post-workshop critique will follow with Leonardo Sonnoli (Italy) and Masayoshi Kodaira (Japan).

AM / Alice Murray
CP / Caroline Powley
DM / Duncan Munro
EdCR / Eve de Castro-Robinson
JR / Jo Ross
KMcP / Kane McPherson
LTC / Layla Tweedie-Cullen
SG / Sarah Gladwell

There will be a physical
outcome, the details
of which will be defined
closer to, and during
the workshop

bring: laptop, notebook,
drawing instruments
of choice (graph paper,
and other materials will
be supplied)
