Rotunda Gothic Workshop in Oslo


Hallo Oslo! I’m very glad to announce that I’ll be there next June teaching a Rotunda workshop!

This time we will learn this characteristic style, developed mainly in Spain and Italy from the 12th to the 15th centuries.
At the beginning of this course, and after an introduction to the contextualisation of this style of writing and the evolution of Gothic writing throughout history, we will revise the basic materials we will work with and we will learn the basic rules of pen manipulation and its behaviour by practising a series of basic exercises. We will also see some books that will be useful to study calligraphy.
Later, we will study and practice the minuscule letters by groups according to their construction with the pen and, at the same time, we will see the basic rules to follow in order to obtain a correct structure and an optimal spacing.
At the end of the course, we will study the capital letters that will accompany this style of writing and we will learn some alternative materials when it comes to practice Rotunda Gothic.

This course is aimed at people who want to introduce themselves in the world of calligraphy, are interested in studying the evolution of the history of writing, want to add a style to their repertoire or want to improve some technical aspects of their writing with the flat pen.

If you're interested in joining us, just drop a line to requesting more information.

See you soon!
