Event description

Description

This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: December 9 & 10, 2017.
Saturday - 9:00 am to 2:30 pm & Sunday - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Blackletter is a genre of calligraphic hands that is characterized by its bold and dense texture. It evolved from Carolingian minuscules starting during the 12th century and was used throughout Europe for several hundred years. We will focus on Gothic Textura which, in addition to being a beautiful hand unto itself, is an excellent starting point for understanding and studying the myriad hands that fall under the blackletter umbrella, such as Fraktur and Batârde. Students will learn a basic Textura alphabet with special focus on spacing, rhythm, and consistency.
