This class is a beginner level and would also be a great review for newer calligraphers.

The classic Italic hand is elegant and beautiful and has withstood the test of time. With its twisted-ribbon flow and flourish, you can't help but want to do it yourself!

In this beginner class, we'll work with simple tools to give you the best start. We'll study the rules of construction for italic, review some of the other tools, study a bit of history and, of course, work on making those perfect letters.

Supply List:

  • Pilot Parallel Pen 3.8 mm

  • Practice paper- Suzanne likes Canson Marker Pro Layout Pad because it is translucent and will work well with the liner she will provide

Engrossers Script is a beautiful, flowing hand steeped in tradition. While very practical, there may be a time when you'll want to break with this traditional style and create letterforms that are more expressive and contemporary. In this class we'll take the same flexible pointed pen we've been using for Engrossers Script and use it to explore the potential for creating new and exciting letterforms. Through step by step instruction we'll start with an informal pen script and then move toward creating a "gothicized" script and an 'uncialized' script. Along the way we'll develop a confidence with the pointed pen and discover the unique avantages of lettering with a flexible tool.
