This session is now fully booked.

Letterpress in Chinese is unique and complex due to the large number of characters needed to form the basic vocabulary, and the beauty and history of calligraphy is embodied in the lead types. While letterpress, as practiced in Hong Kong, boasts a unique mix of Chinese and English which requires a special mix of spacing systems. This workshop aims to share such beauty and skill with international typographers, by means of professional demonstration by a veteran local letterpress practitioner Mr Tong Han-Chi, at the newly founded letterpress studio Zi Wut.

Participants: 10-15 people (due to the limitation of venue space)

This session is now fully booked.
