Medieval Calligraphy

Our most popular online course!

Five Fridays, October 23 through November 20, 4:30pm Pacific

This class is for: Age 10-18. Students age 8-9 may be able to participate; please contact us.

Nothing evokes the world of the late Middle Ages like the elegant blackletter calligraphy preserved in manuscripts. Together we’ll admire centuries-old illuminated pages, discovering the lives of the men and women who made them, and we’ll learn how to make these enchanting letter forms ourselves. SHAK director Shulamit Kleinerman leads students through the techniques up close, first with calligraphy markers and then with real nibs and ink. 

If you want to receive course materials by mail, please register by October 13.
