Typewriter Art Workshop


I attended Barbara’s typewriter workshop this afternoon. After an historical introduction to each typewriter I settled to type on a blue Olivetti. The flour mill studio was a great space to work in with, Chris, Debbie and Sarah. We all had very different approaches to creating on the analogue machines.

Typewriter Art Workshop


I didn't know what to expect but was delighted with the hands-on experience of making more with typewriters than just writing newspaper stories. Barbara not only had some wonderful machines for us to work and play with but also had a long loved experience oh what they were, how they worked and the marvels artists had performed with them. I wrote a mini book on one 1936 Remington and on various portables tapped out some concrete poerty and some creations I never thought I had in me. Well done and thanks I shall never look at a typewriter or use one the same again. Photo shows a Contessa I believe belonged to the Australian Federal Police-what a colour
