Time: 7 pm to 9 pm GMT+1 (Spanish Time)
In this class we will study the technique of hand embossing.
We will start with a brief introduction to monoline capital based on the structure of Rudolf Koch's Neuland. Once we feel comfortable with our calligraphy we will start working on our design.
Having our design ready we will then start to see the techniques of cutting, sticking, and embossing.
As a result of the class we should have a clear understanding of the whole process and be able to emboss our calligraphy or simple illustrations such as christmas motives.
