Held in Heath’s Mission District tile factory, this intense two-day workshop will introduce, develop and enhance skills that will help conquer any creative challenge. Participants will spend one full day each with master lettering artist Ken Barber and master screen printer David Dodde. This master workshop is being held in conjunction with AIGA San Francisco Design Week. Register here.
Presented in Heath’s bright and airy ceramics studio, Ken’s one-day session will provide a detailed introduction to formal and informal script styles as well as trademark House Industries tips, tricks and lettering recipes. Participants will hone their drawing skills as they create one-of-a-kind hand-rendered wordmarks by referencing various tools, techniques and models. In addition to a comprehensive slide presentation, drawing demonstration, and helpful exercises, participants will receive one-on-one personal instruction as they acquire a practical foundation for drawing and utilizing script lettering in assorted design applications.
House Industries screen printing virtuoso David Dodde will spend a day sharing his three decades of screen printing experience and expertise derived from bringing ridiculous House Industries ideas to life. Participants will explore innovative techniques and subtleties of the perfect pull by working with paper and wood objects. Since Heath’s working tile factory is conveniently located in the building, participants will also have the unique opportunity to print glaze on ceramic tiles that will then be fired. The screen printing workshop will be held in Heath’s eclectic Boiler Room gallery.
