How to Make Mistakes on Purpose with Laurie Rosenwald

OCT 27 | 3:30 PM - 4:15 PM EST
Meridian Hall — O’Keefe Lounge
  • Workshop

How to Make Mistakes on Purpose is not that adorable psychopath you once dated, your home pickling phase or baby’s first tattoo.

These may be spectacularly regrettable, but…no. What we do in this workshop is TOP SECRET. Thousands of workshop participants, worldwide…all have sworn omertà, the mafia code of silence. Now it’s your turn to learn the precious secrets of surprise.

We'll have all the materials you need on hand — just come with an open mind, ready to explore your own creativity. You will learn to work fast and freely as Laurie demonstrates some basic analog lettering and drawing techniques using charcoal, sponges, squeeze bottles and dip pen.

Instead of saying “Oh no! I’m coming up empty! What am I going to do?” You'll get to say, “What could this be?” Your answer is already there, in black and white.

Learning Outcomes
  • Create a practical, useful, original resource of letterforms, numerals, textures, lines, symbols that are yours alone, a unique typographic and visual arsenal
  • With this mighty personal resource, you will never be alone with a blank page (or an empty mind) again. Think of it as a party, but for innovation
