Basic Italic Calligraphy, parts 1 & 2
In this two part workshop you will learn Italic calligraphy from professional calligrapher, Meredith Klein. Italic is a simple, beautiful old hand which is highly readable, as well as lending itself to a broad variety of subtle variations. It is also an excellent choice for the novice.
In part one Meredith will show you how to handle your nib holder and broad nib, how to care for it, how to begin to make marks, and how to best have the ink flow. On the first day of class Meredith will teach you the miniscules, or lower case alphabet in the Italic hand.
In the following week you will have a chance to practice, and, when you meet again on the following Saturday, you will learn the upper case or majuscules of the Italic hand.
You will leave class with a solid foundation to work with on your own, as well as your own pen and paper materials from Meredith.
Saturdays, October 26 and November 2, 11am - 5pm
