Batarde is a cursive Gothic script derived from commonly used handwriting styles of the day in the 1300 – 1500’s throughout northern Europe. In the 15th & 16th centuries is became used as a formal script in personal Books of Hours commissioned by wealthy monks.
This Modern Batarde combines elements of formal Gothic scripts and the cursive fluency of Italics. It is a more forgiving script for the beginner to learn while challenging students to a more dexterous use of the chisel-edge nib.
Batarde is a versatile script suited to most calligraphy projects. This workshop is a great fit to follow on from the decorative initial letters, ‘Cadels’, held last month.
Beginners to intermediate students welcome.
