One month Text and Texture workshop in January 2023

Join us for a month-long journey to express our feelings into abstract calligraphic textures. Welcome to someone new to develop calligraphic textures and someone who has been taking Text  and Texture classes to deepen his/her experience!

I will share my interest in American abstract expressionists’ works and Japanese abstract calligraphy. My wish to combine those two with Western calligraphic textures became my life’s work and would like to practice with you to expand it.

I have been fascinated by the process of creating accordion books and series of pages with calligraphic lines and marks. The core of this workshop is the meaning of the text and the main content is calligraphic forms. I will instruct different exercises to create calligraphic textures and lines with the form. We will assemble all exercise sheets in a book form, and will construct accordion books and/or series of individual pages with selected exercise. Basic layout design, composition, use of colors and mediums will be presented.

I look forward working with you at the conference!
