it's all about letters

Are you looking for a calligraphy or lettering course? Do check out our programme 2020-2021.

OUR PROGRAMME

In 2009, a few professional calligraphers and lettering designers decided to set up a unique center for the lettering arts, offering students a training in calligraphy & letter design. At ELI, students will develop a thorough historical and contemporary practical knowledge of written, carved, hand drawn and digital letterforms. There are several ways to join us: Short courses and workshops are open to beginners as well as advanced students. The professional programme however, offers a thorough long term training, which we gratefully use to dig deeper into specific lettering issues. Please discover our different programmes:

Short courses

Every year, ELI puts together a programme of short courses, which are open to beginners and advanced students. It is an ideal way to discover the magic of calligraphy and lettering in general. Since these courses are given in Dutch, we thought it might be of less interest to you, English or French speakers. But you should know that our teaching team travels! So do contact us if you’d like us to come and teach for your local group.

Workshops

Anyone interested in one of our weekend workshops or annual summer school is more than welcome to join up! Do check out who is coming in this year and what they will be talking about. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student, we are looking forward to welcoming you!

Professional programme

For those looking for a longer training programme, we offer a 3-year foundation course, a 2-year postgraduate or a 1-year specialisation course in calligraphy, hand drawn/digital logo- and lettering design. Our experience tells us we need this one-to-one time with students to guarantee a sound and in-depth training.

In general, these classes are Dutch spoken, making it hard for English or French speakers to sign up. However, we would like to point out  that our teaching team is happy to come to your local group and teach these courses in your language! Please contact us for more information.

KICKOFF ALL COURSES IN SEPTEMBER 2020!

We are happy to announce we can start the new academic year as planned. We did everything to make our classrooms as safe as possible. We tried the new setup in May, June and July and it passed the test. We can respect all social distancing rules and with our new camera, we can project all information on the wall. We hope to see you soon!
