Melbourne: Italic Calligraphy Workshop (with Maria Montes)

Italic Calligraphy Workshop
13th August at Rotson Studios (Fitzroy), Melbourne

This 4-hour workshop is an introduction to Italic calligraphy, focusing our attention on the lowercase alphabet. We will write italic letterforms using a traditional broad nib and walnut ink.

Contemporary tools, historical context and examples of applied works included in the session.

Level: Beginners, previous knowledge is not required.

You will learn:
The difference between calligraphy, lettering and typography;
Historical examples of each calligraphic style and projections of contemporary artworks by professional calligraphers and artists;
The fundamental elements of the letter: the strokes.
You will learn that calligraphy directly reflects the movement of the hand. Practicing calligraphy is connecting your brain with your hand and your eye. It is also about having fun and learning by doing!
