Through the analysis of character forms, participants will learn:
- the importance of negative space
- the construction of letters with vertical and oblique axis
- options for stroke endings
- how letters can be modular without being geometric
- the required precision in the drawings
Day 1 (Wednesday, 14 September)
The workshop will begin with calligraphy exercises to help understand the structure and proportions of letters. Several lowercase letters will be explored, working on contrast and stroke endings, and how the character of these letters can be applied to the entire alphabet.
Day 2 (Thursday, 15 September)
The drawings of day 1 and additional letters will be digitized and properly spaced.
