This is a good experience if you are looking to learn the absolute basics of handlettering/calligraphy. Sylvie is an accomplished painter, artist and has been practicing handlettering for a long time. It looks simple on paper, but there’s so much artistry and technique involved and continuous practice is necessary to improve. As for the class, you'll start practicing drawing the alphabet in pencil (it's more challenging than it sounds) and then you’ll move on to writing certain letters with other utensils to practice on outlining the letters needed for your small take home piece (a card, name plate, something similar). Her art studio is comfortable and homey in an area not too far from the Museumsquartier area, and off the tourist path. I ended up being the only one in the class and she still kept the reservation and guided me through basic principles as I had no prior experience. If you’re interested to learn very high level basics from an Austrian local, this class will be a good fit. It's just an hour long, so it's not for someone who wants to go in depth and make lots of art. It’s a good overview class to see if you are interested to do more handlettering in the future.

Due to the traffic I came late, however, Sylvie still waiting for me and I could work to get hand on experience. Very entertaining time with the work.

Interessante Einblicke, geschichtliche Hintergründe und praktische Übungen des Schreibens von Hand. Es ist jedoch nicht, wie man das derzeit moderne Handlettering kennt. Steht dem aber in nichts nach :-)

We were expecting at least learn how to use special pens or have something to take away than just writing A-Z. But the host extended class time without extra charge.

Каллиграфия - очень редкий предмет, со стороны даже несколько аристократичный. Кажется невозможным заниматься каллиграфией без специального образования и художественных способностей. У Сильвии получилось дать прикоснуться к этому искусству, понять его глубину и при этом почувствовать уверенность в своих силах.
