About this Class:

This 2-day workshop will take experienced broad-edged pen calligraphers on an exploration of the italic hand beyond the basics. After a brief refresher of the underlying geometry, form and rhythm of the alphabet, we'll explore ways we can begin to consciously create variations and bring movement and life into our writing.

In a systematic way, we'll explore different approaches to variations and begin to develop our own preferences and personal style of italic. This class will include a more advanced study of the italic form in order to understand ways we might vary the form while still keeping its essence.

Students should leave the workshop with a strong sense of how to approach creating variations in order to develop their own style and expressiveness. We'll work primarily with the broad-edge pen, but we'll also explore different writing tools and their effects on our calligraphy. Students are responsible for their own supplies (see supplies list).

Supply List

Specific calligraphy supplies will be available for purchase from the instructor.
