High on TypeWorkshops and talks in English

A festival bringing together professionals and amateurs of lettering, sign painting, calligraphy and type design. Three days of inspiration, fun and skillshare with international speakers, awesome workshops and general jamboree – this is Berlin Letters.

16–18 May 2019 at Colonia Nova, Berlin

The main festival language is German. But many lectures and workshops will also be held in English. The language gets clearly marked in the programme. There will be no live translation. So, who speaks both languages is most fortunate. And yes, you can book just a workshop.
