The term “Gothic” is a very broad classification for many types of blackletter alphabets, which depend upon time of inception and country of origin. Each has its own personality and they can be quite varied. What they all have in common is the very textural, architectural quality. It can almost look like a weaving with the letters connecting to one another, and sometimes losing legibility. It is surprisingly easy to learn and lovely to behold. I think you will learn to love the rhythm and consistency of this historical, and modern alphabet. In this workshop, we will have time to learn the basic Textura Quadrata style and pair it with the beautiful Fractur capitals.
