Introduction to Gothic Architectural Details and MoldingRegister Now!

Saturday, December 9th; 10:00 A.M - 4:00 P.M.

The gothic is an important complement to the classical in a study of traditional architecture. This class introduces the elements of English variants of the gothic mode, as adapted and reinvented over time for new purposes. Participants will develop a collection of notated sketches of molding profiles, review their appropriate design context, and complete a simple clay model of a gothic molding. All of this will serve as a foundation for further exploration of the gothic character.
