Terrace Room, Margaret Jacks Hall, Bldg. 460


Join Renaissances as we partner with the San Francisco Center for the Book (SFCB) to learn Gothic Textura (Blackletter) calligraphy!

Learn the history and fundamentals of Gothic Textura in this introductory online calligraphy workshop. We will discuss the origins, variations, and contemporary applications of this historic script. You will emerge with the skills necessary to write a basic Blackletter alphabet in this class geared to calligraphy novices. We will tackle different techniques using the broad-edged pen, and you will leave the class armed with handouts and examples to guide and inspire you in your future practice. [courtesy of SFCB]
