Yukimi has been playing with random weighted letters to make calligraphic textures with folded pen. “Random weighted letters” means for her that any strokes of a letter can be weighted thin or thick not following traditional rules. They make calligraphic writing and calligraphic textures more fun and lively. In the first session in this course we will practice simple random weighted letterforms with radius cut folded pen followed by basic stroke exercises. In the second session, we will make textures by writing a text with the. We will play with space, balance, movement and rhythm for making unique calligraphic textures. The color blending technique will be presented and we will have fun with colors at the end.
