Play on Writing/Writing Textures with Denise Lach: March 7 & 8


Play on Writing/Writing Textures with Denise Lach
Saturday/Sunday, March 7 & 8 from 10 to 4
Details and registration here.

From Sherrie Lovler, who just took this class in San Francisco: “Denise is an excellent teacher. She showed hundreds of her own images and encouraged us to go experiment and push ourselves beyond our first ideas. Her books and her work are amazing and she is delightful. She is getting great reviews from the LA Letters California Style and now from us.” You can see some of Sherrie’s work in Denise’s class here.

The Society is excited to present a workshop by internationally renowned calligrapher Denise Lach. Denise hails from France where she has been involved with calligraphy and the graphic arts for over 30 years. She is presently on a US teaching tour, and all of her West Coast workshops sold out within three days! We are fortunate that a few spaces are still available in her New York City class on March 7 & 8.

Denise’s workshop “Play on Writing/Writing Textures” is bound to stimulate your creativity and open up new worlds of calligraphic expression you had probably never envisioned. This will not be a class in conventional formal alphabets, but instead will focus on textural and experimental writing resulting in a woven play of words, not always  legible from a traditional standpoint but always visually challenging and dynamic.

Denise has traveled throughout the world and has incorporated elements of graphic language from many cultures, creating profoundly unique modes of expression while maintaining discipline and precision. Please visit her website to see stunning examples of her work. Her book, Journeys in Calligraphy, can be purchased from John Neal Bookseller, and her works have been published numerous times in Letter Arts Review.

This is an exceptional opportunity to broaden your calligraphic vision. Don’t be disappointed… Register now while there is still time. You will be delighted that you did.
