Spring in calligraphy!

Learn the basics of calligraphy – or practice them some more – with extremely talented professionals Giovanni de Faccio and Laura Di Piazza.

Foundational is a great model to start with, for instance if you’re looking to improve your handwriting or if you want to learn the fundamentals of typography. 

Copperplate became a classic style for stationery and in the class you’ll discover the principles of pointed pen, using the pressure to create thicks and thins.

Cancelleresca (Chancery hand) is “the” italic model by definition. Giovanni studied closely the example from “La Operina” of Ludovico Degli Arrighi and he is able to give his voice and gesture back to teach a style that is easy to write and to read. 

You can take any of this classes and adapt what you learn into a modern style of your own.

All three classes will be held in a beautiful, bright and spacious room of Berlin’s Betahaus in Kreuzberg (the reception area on the 1st floor).

And, this would be our last chance to meet before a long summer break!! Come on down :-)
