• TOPIC: “PLAYXTURA” Gothic Textura’s variations and hybridizations

Despite its reputation as a rigid and formal bookhand during the 11-13th century, Gothic Textura is quite versatile and lends itself to a wide range of variations and hybridizations.  The only limiting factor is our imagination.  In this 2-day workshop, we will explore and play with Textura minuscule variations as well as learn simple ways to jazz up our majuscules with embellishments and flourishes.

• REQUIREMENTS: To be part of the classe no previous specific knowledge is required, only the interest and desire to explore the world of letters.
