WORKSHOP

Building the foundations of the Italic hand

WORKSHOP DETAILS

The Italic hand is one of the most versatile scripts in a calligrapher's repertoire. As with anything we wish to do well, learning the basic skills from scratch from an informed practitioner, followed by plenty of practice, can lead to establishing a firm foundation of that thing.... in this case, Italic.

Spread over six weeks, this course will cover a little history of the script, an introduction of the tools and materials (we will be using dip pens, writing initially with black or sepia ink with a brief taste of colour) and though the focus will be on learning and practicing the minuscule or lowercase italic letters, there will be some fun exercises along the way to whet your appetite about further applications for the italic script.

The course will be suitable for those with no prior experience in calligraphy and for those wishing to work through the basics to hone their skills in Italic.

Starter calligraphy kits including penholders, nibs, ink and paper will be available for purchase on the first night for those who need it.
