Calligraphy - small object of desire
STURT WINTER SCHOOL
1st-5th July 2013
Create works that are elegant and small with an emphasis on very fine flourished Florentine writing with pen and ink along with very tiny penciled Romans.
The calligraphic journey starts with our intention to make beautiful letters. We engage in the discipline of mastering formal hands though we may lose the vitality and enthusiasm in our work. As a point of departure we will start with a flourished Italic and move towards creating dynamic lines of writing with teensy Roman capitals. We will dare to move into unchartered waters and explore ways to invigorate our love for letters. Specifically our aim will be to gain mastery of our calligraphy and texts through small objects of desire. Our small objects will be tiny broadsheets and miniature books with simple bindings.
