On the day

Perfect your Gothic penmanship under the expert instruction of experienced calligraphy artist Ramli Salehkon in this one day calligraphy workshop. Fall in love with the romance of medieval hang as you practise the unique style of the classic Gothic Blackletter Script known as the Textura Quadrata. Create your favourite letters, slogans and quotes with swashes and flourishes on plain or coloured A4 or A3 size papers suitable for display.

Pilot Parallel pens with 3.8mm nibs, papers, markers and ink cartridges will be provided for you to take home as well including a folder with materials and instructions with your name written in blackletter by Ramli. Participants will be guided on the correct way of writing blackletter including the correct finger, wrist and arm movements to get the unique blackletter 'picket fences' straight and the beautiful curves perfected!
