Contextart workshops - Blue Mountains, NSW

 

Contextart - Blue Mountains, NSW

April 14 - 20, 2013

  These workshops are suitable for all levels of experience.

Workshop One:

A 2-DAY Workshop in UNDERSTANDING FORMAL SCRIPTS (Sat/Sun April 13 & 14).  In this two-day workshop we will use a series of well-developed points for understanding how formal scripts work. A couple of prime specimen hands will be studied, deconstructed and recreated. We will compare and contrast the scripts to broaden our choices for future calligraphic works. Students will build a small folio of practical examples to help pen-skills develop. Enrol Now

Workshop Two:

YOUR PERSONAL CALLIGRAPHY JOURNAL (from Monday April 15th to 12:30pm on Friday, April 19th).  When we start our calligraphic journey our intention is to make beautiful letters. We engage in the discipline of mastering formal hands although we may lose the vitality and enthusiasm in our work. This class will help you develop a sound understanding of calligraphy & calligraphic practice.  Explore the tricks of the trade, develop your own personal script, then bind your findings into your personal calligraphic reference journal. As a point of departure we will start with a cursive Italic and move towards creating dynamic lines of writing.  In this workshop we will dare to move into un-chartered waters and explore ways to invigorate our love for letters both well-structured and newly developed. Specifically our aim will be to gain mastery of our calligraphy & texts. Enrol Now
