Weekend Workshop, 21. – 23. April 2023 in Flüeli-Ranft, OW at the Hotel Paxmontana

December 9, 2022 Hanna Biedermann

Topic: The Bold Beauty Font with the automatic pen

Friday, 5:00 pm to Sunday, 4:00 pm

No previews knowledge needed


The beautiful Art Nouveau Hotel Paxmontana is located above the small village of Flüeli-Ranft, with a view of Lake Sarnen and the mountains. Below lies the Ranft gorge with the two chapels and the hermitage of the hermit Brother Klaus (1417-1487). It is a peaceful place of silence where the memory of the Swiss saint is preserved. We will visit the place of power. The modern, bright classroom is in the basement of the hotel. The meals are a culinary delight and the ambience an experience.

Writing the Bold Beauty font is fun, and it encourages experimentation. The alphabet is simplified by the fact that it only consists of lower-case letters, so soon you will feel a sense of first achievements. We will write the Bold Beauty with the automatic pen, which is a versatile writing tool that is perfectly suited for the execution of this font. We will first explore how to use the automatic pen. First, we will explore their use and functions. The angular letters with their clear lines leave a lot of room for creative, effective designs. With ink, colors, colored pencils or large areas of balsa wood, also in combination with the pointed nib, a variety of designs are created.

Everyone’s creative ideas will just bubble up.

Main focus:

  • Familiarisation with the automatic pen
  • The alphabet of the bold beauty script
  • Writing texts
  • Versatile designs
  • Creating an art piece

Such a weekend course is valuable in many ways. Allowing yourself a weekend for your own needs, being away from everyday life in a different environment is beneficial. Having enough time for creative work, being together with like-minded people from different parts of Switzerland, all this is reason enough to look forward to. I firmly believe that we all have deep creative abilities and that the simplest creative practices have an enormous positive power on us humans.
