This is a three session online workshop.

Fraktur, a baroque version of blackletter, conjures up images of the court of Maximilian I and tattoo artwork with its contrast of subtle curves and straight lines. Learn the script of Bocskay, Neudörffer and more modern calligraphers such as Rudolf Koch. You will fall under the charm of its long vertical strokes and hypnotic texture.

All levels of lettering experience are welcome.

These sessions will not be recorded; however, students will have access to videos showing the proper technique for each letterform.
