The Secret History of Writing (DOCU)

Description

Magical words: ancient Chinese seal script! Have you ever looked at these wonderful characters closely? How are they constructed? Can they teach us new ways to shape and arrange Latin letters? Can words become images again? The answer is a resounding “Yes”! We will look at the construction of seal script characters and apply what we learn to Latin letters. This is a fantastic course for anyone interested in putting our alphabet together in new ways. If you have wondered how to create new textures and a different kind of flow from one letter to the next, this is the course for you. Series 1 and Series 2 together form a very good introduction to my way of teaching calligraphy. They are recommended (but not required) for anyone planning to take Series 3 – 8.
