2017 / 2018 Workshops

March 1-4, 2018, by Julian Waters.

At Our Spring 2018 Workshop we will spend four days with Julian Waters studying Beautiful Blackletter: From Textura to Fraktur. Julian describes this workshop as, “A very good grounding, not only in specific styles, but how things work together for consistency and to create style variations, with a lot of emphasis on spacing, and that helps with all other calligraphy.

We are so fortunate to be able to bring this renowned teacher to our area and work with him on these great classic hands. Whether you already love them or are just introducing them to your repertoire, this is a great opportunity! Look online for much more information about Julian and many examples of his beautiful work.
