Vyaz: traditions and modern age

The warm summer day of June 10 has seen the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy welcoming enthusiasts of one of the most beautiful Slavonic writing scripts, which is Vyaz. There is growing interest to Slavonic writing lately, and many contemporary calligraphy artists create to redefine our writing legacy. Learning and repeating age-old writing of our ancestors becomes equally important as does redefining and breathing life into the traditional writing.

Therefore it's come as no surprise that the Russian Vyaz workshop has gathered people of all ages and interests who enjoyed a brief outline of the history of decorative writing and Vyaz in Rus, its specifics and decoration. Led by Andrey Nikonorov, the participants have learnt the basic writing methods and exercised it, finishing the workshop with producing their own names.
