Calligraphy & Lettering Workshop
Special edition USA and European Workshop
 
This is the special edition of my Calligraphy & Lettering Workshop, which I have taught more than 50 times in cities across Brazil and the USA, exclusively taught in English for American and European students.
This two-day workshop will provide an introduction to calligraphy and freehand lettering based on the techniques of the flat nib pen (wide edged nib) and brush pen calligraphy. Participants will be instructed in basic techniques of writing letters with a flat pen, a brush pen, and creating letters with a pencil. They will learn various calligraphic styles such as the Foundational Alphabet, Blackletter, and Brush Style Alphabet. The students are encouraged to bring their own laptops to learn and practice vectorizing techniques

Designers, art directors, architects, and those interested in visual arts
