About the workshop: 

Letters act as practical and useful signs, but also as pure and inner melody -Wassily Kandinsky

Pure form, the quality of the line and the ornamental potential of writing - this is what it´s all about in this class. We will play with letterform variations, experiment with layout-ideas and then finish it all up with a spark of gold.

   Basic alphabet will be the Antiqua-letterforms - even if you haven´t tried writing them yet, your eye is used to them. We will use them and play with them, transform them and create new compositions. Step-by-step through the creative process up to a series of works.

   We will incorporate gold, will learn about some glittering effects, highlighting certain areas and a very easy way of gilding. Let´s have fun!

The workshop will be recorded and available for two months.

Experience Level: Beginner through advanced.
