ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: This is an alphabet by German type designer Rudolf Koch while he worked at the Klingspor Type Foundry. He was a skilled calligrapher in his own right.  In this class you will learn the simple principles of Neuland and then also enjoy writing with the alternative letterforms.  Think of it as a guided tour but then you will be on your own and the only rule is to explore and be inspired by what you see being created.  This versatile hand is useful for broadsides, envelopes, certificates, ceramic pots, walls and posters.

ABOUT YVONNE: Yvonne Perez-Collins taught Textile Surface Design twenty-four years that included state and national conferences. She has always enjoyed learning as much as teaching. Feeling that lightbulb moment doesn’t get old and is only better when you can turn it on for someone else. Yvonne continues to work in numerous mediums with lettering and various arts. She teaches bookmaking in San Diego libraries to various age groups. Visit: envisionitsandiego.com
