Continuous Line Letters & Words
Class has ended but the recordings can still be purchased

From ancient cave painters to Picasso, Calder and Klee, artists have long been interested in what happens when a line is drawn continuously without lifts.

But what can the calligrapher do with a continuous line? Plenty!

In this class, we will look at other artists’ interpretations of this technique and see how their process can be applied to letters and words. By exploring the continuous line, new ways to make and connect let-ters will be discovered, resulting in fresh ways to enhance your calligraphy.

All sessions will be recorded, and there is no time limit on the videos.

Akim Variations & Long Compositions

‘Akim Cursive’ is a hand created by calligrapher Hans-Joachim Burgert and is said to replicate the rhythm of the human heart. This class briefly explores Burgert’s version, then moves into more expressive variations using several different tools. We will also write longer texts and compositions, focusing on the rhythmic patterns for which Akim is known. Finally, we will look closely at Burgert’s abstract compositions and create larger pieces which mimic his style.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a one-day class is being offered through Legacies III, the International Calligraphy Conference that was held in July, 2021. This class will be offered through June, 2023.
