Calligraphy: Gothic Black Letter

with Kris MacDonald
Sundays: January 27, February 3, 10; 1-4pm

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, learn both the minuscule and majuscule letters (lower and upper case). 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.
