Latin calligraphy is western calligraphy with the exclusion of the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. Early alphabets had evolved by 3000 BC and the evolution of the lettering is fundamentally linked to religious, political and cultural movements of its time. It continues to flourish today in many forms including official documents, wedding invitations and religious art.

Through this workshop you will gain a mastery of classical forms, and the different tools used to produce them. You will acquire an understanding of graphic culture and how it can be linked to your own personal expression.

Instructor: Laurent Rebena is a professional calligrapher who has practised and taught occidental calligraphy for twenty years. He studied calligraphy at the Scriptorium of Toulouse, France and is a co-founder of the Calligraphis Association. Bruno Gigarel also studied at the Scriptorium of Toulouse, following the teachings of Bernard Arin. He specialises in public frescos for companies such as Microsoft, Canon and Rothschild.
