In this workshop we will explore contemporary Versal forms starting with Irene
Wellington and others moving into a freer structure. Taking the basic Versal
construction we will build on that to create vivacious forms that live and breathe on the page. This in turn will allow you a little more creativity of expression with the gestural forms as well. The outcome of this class will touch on sound structure showing the possibilities of what can be done. Leaving you more confident in working with contemporary Versals.
