[ What You'll Learn ]
This 4-evening workshop invites you to join the fascinating world of Spencerian Script. You will get to learn the history behind this beautiful script, which is over 200 years old! Topics will cover the history of Platt Rogers Spencer, postures, correct pen grip, warm up exercises and drills, principle strokes, curvature and movement, nib manipulation and the element of shading.
In this weekly evening workshop, we will focus on technical exercises to achieve consistency in sizes, forms and structure for both majuscules (capitals) and minuscules (lower cases).
Students will learn and practice along during the classes (our instructor - Kalo uses a documentary camera to project her writing on the screen.) Students will also receive personal feedback for their homework (optional) completed outside of the workshop hours.
