  2018 Classes inside Chicago

 

  Classes at the Irish American Heritage Center

To All Chicago Calligraphy Collective Members (and beyond)

   

Below are the descriptions for the classes I will begin teaching in January 2018 at the Irish American Heritage Center. They include instructions for methods of payments including a link. This is a great venue and I hope by teaching on Tuesday afternoons it will enable people to participate who find weekends interfering with family, and evenings difficult to navigate around rush hour. Please don’t hesitate to call me at 773-202-8321 or email me at contactreggie@comcast.net   if you have questions. I look forward to teaching back here  at home in Chicago.

$160.00
We will use seven different metal leafs on four different acrylic gilding bases. The emphasis will be on ease of use and
dependable, spectacular results! You can use this short course as an introduction or “brush up” to previous instruction on gilding.
You will have several small (glittering!) finished pieces by the end of this short course. No lettering experience is necessary.
Once you experience it I hope you will consider the supply fee a bargain.

This basic version of Carolingian we will start with has everything to do with directness, rhythm, and enjoyment (fun). Twenty-one of

  3.  Blackletter and Variations:  March 27, April 3, 10, 17, 2018

$140.00
We will begin by grounding ourselves in a strong, basic form of gothic: Textura. Then we will, variable by variable, morph it through a series of permutations; creating variations, modernizing it and doing projects that are anything but traditional. Every session we will work with a variety of papers, writing fluids and nibs, techniques, as well as layouts and designs. Beginners through advanced welcome.

  4. Italic and Variations: May 7, 14, 21, 28, 2018

$140.00

We will begin with an elegant version of Italic whose influences go as far back as Ludovico Arrighi (1522),
and Bernardino Cataneo (1544), and are as contemporary as Dick Beasley and Jacki Svaren. After steeping ourselves in this style, we will generate strikingly different variations, pushing the envelope, perhaps

causing us to ask “What is Italic?” Every session, we will work with a variety of papers, writing fluids, nibs, and techniques, as well as layouts and designs. Beginners through advanced welcome.
