Public Workshops

Some of the workshops listed here are offered as electives for the Typeface Design Certificate Program. Space permitting, these workshops are also offered to the general public.

Interest in the Type@Cooper workshops has been overwhelming. In response, we are offering a number of workshops that are not electives, but offer professional training in lettering, type history and typeface design technology and production to anyone wishing to build skills and their knowledge base in these fields from top industry professionals.

The workshops do not require an application, you can enroll online or by phone through the Continuing Education office: 212-353-4195, 10:30 am–5:30 pm. Registration for the spring workshops will be open on January 6–January 27, 2014. A $15 late fee will be applied to registration for spring workshops after January 27.

Registration for summer workshops will take place in May 2014.
