09 Calligraphy: hierarchy of the scripts with Gemma Black

In the evolution of writing there has been a hierarchy of letterforms – from beautiful, intricate illuminated initials right down to the book-hand of the day. With a hands-on approach, create examples from chosen works of the 10th, 11th & 12th centuries, then springboard forward to explore contemporary ideas and create samples. Pen, paint and draw, working on a variety of compositions, culminating in small works on paper that are both traditional as well as having a modern spin on the “hierarchy of the scripts”.
Gemma Black is an artist, teacher and calligraphic-designer from Tasmania. A Churchill Fellowship recipient and an Honoured Fellow of the Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society, UK, Gemma has joined the faculty at international lettering-art conferences worldwide and her work is housed in private and public collections nationally and internationally.
