CNC 202: All Things Text with Debra Crane
Woodcraft of Nashville
Sat, Sep 14 9:00 am

This class centers around all concepts specific to creating a wide variety of text-based projects. Topics will include choosing between fonts and font types, special concerns regarding script fonts, curving text along vectors and "distorting" text for a vintage / retro feel. Students will also learn when and how to convert text to curves so that they can make modifications using node editing, crucial for creating monograms. The piece de resistance will be designing a "stacked text" (also known as "text-on-text") project that can also be used as a template for future stacked-text projects. Projects will include a "floating script" sign, a monogram door hanger, a "distorted" retro sign, a "stacked text" project and (if time permits) a "micro-font" tree ornament.
