July 2 - Blackletter Calligraphy

115.00

Blackletter is a Gothic script composed of simple yet distinctive strokes using a broad-nib pen, also known as chisel-tip. Nearly 1000 years old, Blackletter is what we often think of in association with medieval European manuscripts. We will begin with the highly approachable lowercase Blackletter alphabet. The afternoon will be spent covering variations of serifs and uppercase or capital letters. This class is suitable for the beginner, and can provide a colorful addition to the repertoire of the more experienced calligrapher.
