Introduction to Blackletter (Gothic) Calligraphy: A Hands-On Workshop


This three-hour hands-on workshop, taught by Lisa LeBlanc of Kalamazoo’s Pen Dragons Calligraphy Guild, in two parts (1:30-3:00 p.m. and 3:30-5:00 p.m.) introduces participants to the hand lettering known as Blackletter or Gothic. We will explore upper- and lower-case letter construction, spacing, and layout. We will also take a brief look at historical variations and contemporary uses. Participants are expected to attend both halves of the workshop. Space is limited, advanced (before May 8) registration is required (, and each participant pays a $10.00 materials fee.
