Horta Museum x CIVA — A good impression


For World Art Nouveau Day, the Horta Museum and CIVA team up offering a joint family program. The Horta Museum invites you to discover Victor Horta's personal residence through a short and playful tour that highlights the architect's diverse typographic research. You will discover many unpublished monogram projects, an incredible clock, and -if you pay close attention- the signature of the art nouveau master, hidden somewhere in the ironwork of the main staircase!

Following the inspirational session at the Horta Museum that will have your eyes filled with curves from A to Z, you can join CIVA for a family workshop on engraving and typography. You will get to know all there is to know about stamps, gouges and art nouveau letters and dramatically expand your vocabulary, using fancy words like "neoprene" or "loporello". At the end of the workshop, an impressive colourful print of your own will see the light… an that’s without having any prior knowledge!
