WORKSHOPS

2 Day Advanced Manipulated Italic and 2 Day Layered Calligraphy

MANIPULATED ITALIC DETAILS

"This is my main style of italic with fast gestural pen manipulations, which aid the fluency of strokes."
The class will include acute analysis of structural rhythm, and fluency will also be encouraged by the incorporation of pen flicks and fast manipulated strokes.

These took me years to develop one by one, and in just two days the students are not expected to master them. The workshop will, however, open your mind to many new dynamics of calligraphy which can be taken home and practiced by students in their own time.

LAYERED CALLIGRAPHY DETAILS

The workshop will include writing text on top of text for a range of textural effects, and collaging layers of translucent material to make rich layered designs. Students will learn how color and value affect overlapping layers, either to keep them spatially distinct, or to merge as one textural layer.
