Description

In this workshop, we leave behind the set of rules of traditional layout, as these rules may paralyze or confine the student who wants to leave the beaten paths of calligraphy. A series of well chosen exercises will show how, by fearless experiments, we can come up with original and powerful compositions. We’ll see that this way of working allows us to stay alert to what happens on the paper and will prompt us to find solutions for problems that appear during the process. Gradually, we will sharpen our graphic eye and learn about the hidden rules of experimental layout. As it turns out, having no preconceived ideas about the work has nothing but advantages, especially if the gesso is close at hand. The design exercises will be interspersed with writing exercises in which the basics of interesting gestural writing and drawn lettering will be explained and immediately put into practice.
