Calligraphy with Gemma Black

Hierarchy of the Scripts
12 - 18 JAN 2020
8.30 AM - 4.00 PM
USQ Toowoomba


Even in the evolution of writing there has been a hierarchy of letterforms from beautiful and intricate illuminated initials right down to the book-hand of the day.

In this workshop you will study prime specimen manuscripts that show this hierarchy and we’ll take a hands-on approach to create similar examples from carefully chosen works of the 10th, 11th and 12th centuries.

You will pen, paint and draw letters and images. Gemma will guide you on a variety of compositions culminating in little works on paper.  These works will be both traditional as well as having a modern spin on the “hierarchy of the scripts”.
