Workshop Overview

Many traditional tools for calligraphy and drawing can be found in nature such as reeds, feathers, hair, and sticks. They can be used on a variety of surfaces also found in nature—wood, bark, leaves, and stones, and when combined with other traditional materials such as ink and paper, the versatility and everlasting beauty of Roman capitals takes on an expressive range of personalities whether written with classic proportions or inventive ones. Students will be encouraged to introduce a drawing component to complement their calligraphy, but it is not mandatory. Using only sustainable and compostable materials, your tools can be safely returned to nature at the close of the workshop.
