Grab this chance to work with a chisel-edged brush on a fairly large scale to gain a better understanding and greater confidence in use of Roman letterforms!
Yukimi will guide us in using tools as extensions of our hand as we create marks and design alphabets to write our chosen texts in various ways. Study of layering, tones, basic design layout and composition, and use of line and space in Japanese calligraphy will be presented for making effective textures.
If you’ve wanted to learn how to draw, add illustrations to your calligraphy, build drawing skills to improve painting or simply conquer your fear of drawing (or all of the above), this class is for you!
Come and explore exquisite versal forms from every genre. Traditional techniques will be learnt along with new and more gestural versal forms.
Learn this elegant hand by working through a series of selective exercises and come to understand the nuances of certain writing masters that resulted in a hand more elegant and cursive in structure than formal italic.
