Event description

Description

Dates: May 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st, June 7th, 14th

Time: Thursdays evenings 7pm - 9pm


Another offering in our Beginner Series, the Calligraphy Society is running a weekly workshop over 6 weeks to learn the Gothic Hand.


Gothic lettering, also referred to as Blackletter, is a script used from around 1150 until well into the 17th century.
Characterised by tall vertical letters and a dense textural appearance it is an excellent script for beginners allowing a great sense of formality to their work. In this course we will study the structure and construction of the letters and investigate some of the many beautiful and elegant variations.

If you have already had some instruction but wish to refresh your skills, you are most welcome to join the class.
