Main content

Bas Vlam studied calligraphy in the Netherlands and England. He has participated in a number of courses with esteemed calligraphers. Bas organises courses and lectures on calligraphy, brushlettering and bookbinding for adults and children. 

In the Middle Ages, the art of writing and copying books was a profession that required a lot of experience to master. Today, when most of the texts around us are printed, calligraphy can still provide new insights. 

We are looking forward to this interesting event!

The course is free of charge, but requires registration due to a limited number of places.
