Decorative type is also known as ornamental or display type. Evolving from Wood Type to Circus, in the early 1900’s decorative type began in response to publisher and advertiser needs to make more interesting displays in posters and advertising. Once the Pandora's box of typeface creation was opened, the number of Decorative type faces exploded and the possibilities of type creation were understood to be endless.

Join Janice in her ongoing series investigating hand lettering, experiencing first-hand the history of type and really pushing the boundaries of what decorative type is all about.

Janice's free demo on Friday, Feb 3rd is followed up with a one-day workshop on Saturday, February 18th. In addition, most Monday evenings from 5-7 pm, Janice offers “Alphabet Alchemy”, an ongoing exploration of hand lettering. February’s focus is decorative type.
