    Class Workshop

Begin your exploration into the art of calligraphy in a 6 week workshop by a local calligrapher with over 30 years of experience.

This workshop will introduce the beginning to intermediate student to the Italic Hand.

The Italic Hand is a slightly sloped style of calligraphy that was developed during the Renaissance in Italy. It is one of the most popular styles used in contemporary Western calligraphy, and is often one of the first scripts learned by beginning calligraphers. You can learn more about its history here.

This workshop will provide step-by-step demonstration and individualized instruction to help each student produce beautiful Italic letterforms. If you have experience with Italic, let’s explore ways to make your Italic more dynamic!

Proper care of tools, good practice habits, spacing and layout, resources, and other calligraphic possibilities will be presented and explored as students open the door to this amazing art form.

All materials will be provided and are included in the fee. (If you have some experience with calligraphy – feel free to bring any tools you might already have and want to use)
