Art Nouveau, as a movement, was a reaction to industrialization in the late nineteenth century; in the twenty-first century the problems experienced a century ago have only intensified, impacting on a global scale. In this workshop Ewan looks at one strand of Art Nouveau, its turn to natural forms and structures. This is a move we too can adopt for developing new approaches. We look for inspiration at letters developed by Art Nouveau artists in France, Austria, and Spain. Here is a chance to explore how our calligraphy practice can contribute to reflection on contemporary ecological issues.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.


Price: $125 CAD
