calligraphy course "Talking is silver, writing is gold"

calligraphy course "Talking is silver, writing is gold"

In this course, I will also give an introduction to writing beautifully with pen and ink and hand lettering with fineliner and brush pen. Although both types of writing are based on different tools, many forms of hand lettering are based on classic calligraphy. Conversely, hand lettering techniques can enrich and refresh conventional pen fonts. The formal language of the font is also wonderfully suitable for developing ornaments from it. Alternately, you can try out in the course whether it is easier for you to write fluently or to draw scripts according to plan. Whether wild or precise, richly decorated or factual - everyone can delve into the kind of beautiful writing and drawing that suits them better. This is the basis with the help of which the design of your own texts, writing sheets, pictures or objects with writing or ornaments succeed. Either way, you have the chance to stock up on handwritten greeting cards during the course.

To make the whole thing even more lively, we manufacture some of the writing implements ourselves in the course. As a highlight, in the literal sense of the word, there is also a simple gilding technique that can be used not only on paper but also on three-dimensional objects.

The course is suitable for beginners. Annekathrin Pohle will lead the course.

The calligraphy course “Talking is silver, writing is gold” will take place every Thursday from November 26th, 2020 from 8.30pm to 10pm in our creative workshop at Hohen Weg 6 in Halle.

The course fee is one-time EUR 30 per course; it contains all the materials for you.
