Calligraphy is a writing style that has flourished over thousands of years. Before the invention of the printing press, books and manuscripts were beautifully hand-lettered and illuminated with decorated letters. This class will teach the history of writing by looking at various alphabets and materials. Using dip pens, students will learn to write the Italic alphabet, decorated letters, and also how to reproduce the illuminated pages of medieval manuscripts.
