Calligraphie: la Textura et ses secrets

Luc Saucier - MMFA

Course taking place once weekly over 5 weeks.

The most famous of the medieval scripts, the Textura (commonly known as “Gothic”) seduces with its strength, density and apparent complexity. We will start with an overview of the history of the Textura, then we will undertake the practical study of its features.

All information can be found on the MMFA website.

Calligraphie créative: recréer les signes du language

Luc Saucier - MMFA

Weekend workshop.

In this workshop, each participant will be invited to relive this pivotal moment in our history, the beginning of a written culture, by recreating the signs of language in a perfectly unique way. The common thread will be paper, but the tool will be chosen blindly and its use will also have to be recreated.

All information can be found on the MMFA website.
