No previous knowledge necessary.


The monastery of Mariastein, where I have been teaching for many years, has become a favorite place for me. Every time I am pleased to see how much the participants enjoy the stay there, relax during calligraphy and feel the positive energy of this place of power. It is a restful but inspiring experience for everyone, so many participants are always happy to return.

Subject of the course: Introduction to the «Sans Serif Antiqua» font. First, the alphabet of this historical script is learned. Beginners learn to use pen and ink. After that words and texts are written. Then jointly we practice the transition to the experimental execution of the antiqua font in a modified form. Playfully, flying over the paper, with many creative possibilities of color designs and accents.

We are getting into Christmas mood. The things we have learned are now practically implemented. Christmas cards are made in the same style made with warm colors, with glitter and mica, golden, silvery, which makes the eyes shine and delights both the giver and the recipient alike.
