Throughout the weekend there will be workshops from The Girlhood, which aims to empower girls and young women using creativity.

Type expert Sarah Hyndman will present a Pop-up Type Tasting session, in which parcipants can use “font goggles” to reveal what typefaces are really communicating, and match smells to typefaces.

All the sessions are free, with the exception of Morag Myerscough’s talk, which costs £15 and can be booked at www.londondesignfestival.com.
