This will be my farewell to Mariastein Monastery. For many years I had the great pleasure to offer my calligraphy classes in this wonderful place. Many very special memories remain. Even if melancholy comes up, I realize it’s time to take new paths and opportunities.

Moderne Kalligraphie

Traces: With multi line nibs you will practice generous curves and letters, as well as patterns and signs. Whether on a dark background with a contrasting color, whether with colored accents, there are no limits to your imagination. For this purpose, a free, modern calligraphic script will be practiced, and combined.

Christmassy Inspirations: Christmas is soon coming, and we consciously tune in to the festival of love. This is the opportunity to feel love and affection, with gestures of handmade creations. Therein lies your treasure, which consists your time and love. The recipient will be amazed and feel joy and appreciation. Make your choice for a special attention, it can also be for the advent season. Golden, silvery lines run through the Christmas card, a personal letter, a little self-written story, a multi-layered star to hang up with your traces, an Advent greeting to hang up. The choice is yours.
