Calligraphy taster course in Basel Friday, October 20, 2023, 6.00 pm – 10.00 pm

Try it out and make new experiences

Friday evening is a special evening of the week, isn’t it? So off we go into the weekend! I’ll take you into the exciting world of calligraphy. There’s something magical about dipping your pen into the ink as it slowly glides across the paper, leaving wonderful marks. Try out the different writing tools, they are new writing experiences.


What is waiting for you? For some of you it might like entering a new territory. It feels refreshingly nostalgic, almost a bit exciting. When was the last time you wrote with a pen? To experience the moment slowly with all your senses as the pen glides over the paper and leaves wonderful traces, it is pure joy.

There will be a choice of two traditional scripts: Uniciale and Anglaise. These calligraphic scripts are written with two different nibs. Under my guidance you will learn how to use these nibs. Try out and practice the scripts. You will calligraph words or a short sentence on the painted backgrounds prepared by me.  Or you can add your own colourful, painted accents in combination with the script. You’ll be surprised!

To an inspiring start of the weekend!
