FLOURISHING: A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE -A LOT OF NERVE
– Bruges – monday and tuesday –

Using flourishes can be very intimidating, but calligrapher Diane von Arx (USA) will show us step by step how and why to make these decorative shapes. We will discuss the appropriateness of applying lively flourishes in individual letterforms and layouts. Diane will help every student to push his or her skills forward and gain a deeper understanding of the pen movements.

QUILLS AND VELLUM
– Bruges – monday and tuesday –

Calligrapher Sue Hufton (UK) will share her expertise on how to prepare quills and vellum for calligraphic use. Writing with a good cured and cut quill on well prepared vellum is a joy that is hard to imagine until you’ve experienced it. This is essentially a detailed technical workshop that will give you skills to apply to your own work. Every student will get thorough individual feedback.
