Belles Nouvelles Lettres

By Heather Held

Starting Date : 07 Jan 2023

Fees : HK$ 740 or US$ 95

Workshop Description

A world of inspiration and play is waiting for you through drawn letter forms. This class offers a

fresh look at drawing and decorating beautifully ornate letters. Taking visual clues from Art

Nouveau typography, Toile Du Jouy fabric, decorative florals, and the delicate colours of a

Parisian inspired palette, we will create these whimsical letterforms. The Art Nouveau period

gives us slender, curvaceous forms that are richly inspired by nature. Using pencil, eraser and a

pen etching technique as our simple tools, we will explore the possibilities of these wonderful

letters. With time and practice, they can become as simple or as complex as you like. You will

never see letters in quite the same way as we explore this class! Open to all skill levels. Bring a

sense of play and curiosity to this class.
