Calligraphy with Giuliano Bocchi
15 Sep 2018 ore 09:30 - 17:30
“Tratti di carattere”
From Script fonts to calligraphy
“Tratti di carattere”. From Script fonts to calligraphy is a truly original calligraphy workshop, that combines two meticolous passions of Giuliano Bocchi: typography and calligraphy.
Starting from existing typefaces, the workshop proposes an itinerary that, through the use and the study of brush lettering, will lead to the essence of letters.
In this way, will be suggested a method to observe, under a calligraphic point of view, the defined and constant shapes of typography, taking them back into a fluid, flexible and customizable experimental environment.
Each participant can experience the possibilities offered by the use of a brush in formal writings.
The workshop is open to everybody, useful both for those who want to approach calligraphy and for those who already cultivates this passion.
