Calligraphy workshop with Chiara Riva - On Line class via Google Meet

Informazioni sull'evento

In addition to traditional nibs such as the broadedge and pointed nibs, there are nibs with particular points: square or round section. These nibs can be used to draw strokes with rounded endings, or to characterize letters with particular contrasts. Starting from the skeleton of a writing known to us, we will discover how to use these tools, in more or less conventional ways, through variations of rhythm and contrast, helping us with manipulation techniques.

Class Schedule: We will meet Fri January 22, 2021 (from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Rome Time), Sat January 23 & Sun January 24 2021, from 03:00 PM to 05:00 PM Rome Time and Sat January 30 & Sun January 31 2021, from 03:00 PM to 05:00 PM Rome Time. Our first meeting is a brief intro and dry-run test call for about an hour.

This is a LIVE class, which is recorded for your enjoyment and review, then uploaded to a Google Class Room dedicated.

The video links will be available for 2 months, after that the link will expire. The link is personal, please don't share it.

The Google ClassRoom will be our virtual classroom for every time we meet and allow us to interact each other in easy way. When the link and intro email is sent to you, click the link, which will open a web page in your web browser.
