Handlettering Bodoni Style Special : Seasonal Greetings Cost : US$100 or HK$780

In general, there are two ways of producing a script: Either you write the letters or you draw them. When you write you define the letter by the width of the stroke you make with your tool. When you draw you define it by an outline. For drawing you don’t need any special calligraphy tools. Any ordinary writing tool will do, even a ballpoint pen. This will allow you to do calligraphy spontaneously or when you are on the go. When thinking of lively drawn letters we think of Sherri Kiesel’s wonderful script. In 2015 Thomas Hoyer designed his own script of drawn letters. It is based on the scripts developed by the Italian typographer and publisher Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) .

In this workshop you will learn the basics and then more expressive, free variations of the single letters. You will also experiment with different tools and use your personal momentum and flow to let this Handlettering Bodoni-Style come to live.
