  • VIII International Calligraphy Workshop (September 29-30 – October 1st / October 6-8, 2017)

The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia offers this year, once again, the Calligraphy workshop in Italian and English language, held by the artist Monica Dengo. The course will be articulated in two modules, three days each, with the possibility of attending one module or both. The location will be the Correr Museum, to offer the possibility to observe in person the ancient manuscripts preserved in the Historical Library. In the same location students will work and experiment with the potentials of handwriting as an expressive medium. This year the course will be dedicated to the stroke with pointed and squared edge instruments. We will compare ancient and contemporary manuscripts to understand how our perception of writing has changed, in relation to the body, the legibility, the gesture and the expression.  Both modules will end with the making of a book by each participant.
