Gothic letterforms have great appeal thanks to their strong and sharp shapes.

This workshop offers a journey through this writing style that begins with Textura — which was mainly used for written manuscripts — to its Renaissance evolution. Fraktur — characterized by a strong decorative component with complex and generous capital letters — offers the chance to experience endless possibilities of variations that are still widely used today.

We will start by studying the historical shapes writing with the broad edge pen. We will then write letters in a more expressive way using the twist of the brush. Finally, we will move on to the development of other more personal and modern alphabets.

This is a course for beginners, experts, and those who want a deeper study of this writing style.
