January 13, 2pm: Typography Workshop (Art Deco in Modern Times)
Anyone can find free fonts online but did you know that you can also create your very own unique font?
Typography, in a nutshell, is the art and technique of arranging type. In the past, typography was pretty much exclusively the work of typesetters, but today is practiced by graphic designers, art directors, manga artists, comic book artists, graffiti artists, and doodlers. Join our guest curators Jane Merks and Peter Bartl to design your very own font.
This is part of our Youth Arts Hub partnership, and is primarily for 12 to 18 year olds, although we will make a few spaces for adults as well. FREE!
Every Thursday from 5-8pm: Thursday Date Night
Visit the Museum for free on Thursdays from 5-8pm and receive a $5 certificate towards the Hume Hotel. Enjoy amazing art, history, food and drink in two of Nelson’s finest heritage buildings!
