The Krabbesholm Alphabet

Is it possible to capture the complexity, spirit and ever-changing atmosphere of a site into (typo-) graphical shapes? 

During the week-long workshop the participants will be asked to identify and research themes related to the school and draw the Krabbesholm alphabet.

Every typeface is an essence of diverse cultural layers embodied (or imprisoned?) in its shapes. This workshop should attempt to do just that for the Krabbesholm alphabet, although – given the compressed time-frame – in a kind of particle accelerator.

The researched themes might cover personal observations, opinions or facts from the history of the school. The letter-shapes will be drawn individually by hand, in given size and technique, and collected into one alphabet.

A dossier on Krabbesholm including the alphabet will be produced at the end of the workshop. It will become a basis for development of the new identity of the school.
