Fall in love with the romance of medieval hang as you perfect the unique style of the classic Blackletter Script with calligrapher Ramli Salehkon.

Participants will be guided on the correct way of writing blackletter including the correct finger, wrist and arm movements ('the whole arm technique') to get the unique blackletter 'picket fences' straight and the beautiful curves perfected. Various forms of writing the Gothic capitals will be demonstrated with flourishes and swashes and participants will be guided and corrected on their strokes and finishing touches. Writing, drawing and decorating Lombardic Capitals will be demonstrated, and participants will be guided on how to illustrate them.

Create your favourite letters, slogans and quotes with swashes and flourishes on plain or coloured A4 or A3 size papers suitable for display.

Pilot Parallel pens with 6 mm nibs, papers, markers and ink cartridges will be provided for you to take home, as well as a folder with materials and instructions with your name written in blackletter by Ramli.
