Benoit Furet discovered calligraphy almost by chance 28 years ago and was immediately hooked. Since then he has been studying historical scripts and decoration techniques among which can be found the filigrees. He is really attached to the historicity of the writings used in his works even if he likes to play with other materials and colors than the one originally used. For more than 10 years, calligraphy remained a hobby then changed to a part-time job and is now a full time occupancy. Benoit has been teaching calligraphy, lettering and ornaments for 15 years in Europe and North America.
