Calligraphy workshops at Rotson Studios

This past 13th of June, my friend the great photographer, Mark Lobo, attended one of my calligraphy workshops in Melbourne. On this occasion, he also documented the 4-hour workshop focused on Copperplate Calligraphy.

The sessions are hosted at Rotson Studios, a gorgeous co-working space in the heart of Fitzroy, Melbourne (Australia). Mark Lobo did a great job and below are some examples:

Ink and paper are included in each session. If you need to buy material, I have spare nibs, nib holders and walnut ink available for sale on the day of the session.

Around 1pm we have a 20 minute break including snacks, fruit, cheese, tea and coffee. After the break I do a brief presentation about the historical context of the style of writing and I show examples of applied works by professional calligraphers, including artworks by Keith Adams, Amanda Adams and Oriol Miró.
