Calligraphy: Gothic Black Letter


Calligraphy: Gothic Black Letter
with Kris MacDonald
Thursdays: August 3, 10, 17; 6-9pm

Gothic black letter calligraphy looks impressively difficult, and is surprisingly one of the easier hands to learn. Using broad-edged dip pens and walnut ink, you will learn both the minuscule and majuscule letters (lower and upper case). We will explore some different visual weights possible by manipulating pen scale on blocks of text writing, and will look at the work of some contemporary gothic lettering artists.
