What’s inlcuded?
As part of the 24 hours of teaching, the course will include a crash course titled Advanced Tech for Sloped Arabic that can also be booked separately.

Students will also be given access to use Toshi’s own scripts that greatly facilitate the kerning of sloped Arabic fonts. They can continue to use these scripts after the course is done, for non-commercial projects.
