Blackletter Variation (Schwabacker) taught by Reggie Ezell.  There are many variations of Blackletter (or Gothic) that have come down through the centuries.  A group of these are termed Batard because of their mixed parentage, that is they are a fusion of at least two different letter styles.  The variation we will be doing in this workshop is termed Schwabacker.  Students will also be introduced to a set of capitals that can be used with these lower case forms. Cost is $30 for non-members (must be member by 8/26/21)

 This will be a live presentation via Zoom which will be recorded and available for viewing at a later time.
