Calligraphy Workshop with Carmen Nistor
The Calligraphy workshop is designed for and dedicated to adults from 18 years old to 100+, aiming to learn new techniques and writing styles combined with creative exercises.
Throughout these exciting hands-on activities, students will go through a great creative learning curve, starting from as basic as building calligraphy tools from scratch (using basic elements), simple textures and patterns all the way to creating their own texts, illuminated manuscripts, birthday cards, bookmarks and other finished products using letters and illustration.
Ability to write in Foundational and Uncial Text and experimenting with illuminating and embellishing styles will also be taught.
All this will result in your own portfolio of calligraphic works which will include DIY cards, monograms, bookmarks, embellished letters and much more.
