Contemporary calligraphy has a grand future OFF paper. My career has been full of fascinating commissions in metal and glass for architecture and other applications. You will learn to design for laser-cutting, including some basic plotting techniques to prepare your files for the laser. (Simple options for those without digital skills will be discussed!) You will learn to make a mock-up for large-scale architectural works and to develop the content (theme, meaning) for a specific project. The course will also look at applications on glass, both architectural and small scale. At the end of the course, you will have a sandblasted glass object and, budget permitting, a laser-cut metal object for all to admire.
