Workshop Description

One of the great achievements of the Emperor Charlemagne, crowned in 800 AD, was the Carolingian Renaissance, a widespread cultural and educational revival. During this period, Charlemagne mandated the unification of the many and mutually illegible scripts used throughout his vast empire, into a single writing style, which we now call the Carolingian Minuscule. In this workshop, contemporary calligraphers will be introduced to this elegant, legible alphabet, which was the precursor of many writing styles practiced today, notably Italic, Foundational and Humanist Bookhand. Carolingian was created as a lower case (minuscule) alphabet that functions well with Uncial capital letters.
