NEULAND SCRIPT tutor JAN MEHIGAN

Neuland is a contemporary hand based on a typeface designed by Rudolf Koch (1876-1934). Unlike other letters Neuland has no thin strokes. The bold letter-forms are written at 3 or 4 nib widths with hardly any interlinear space. Exciting variations can be made and colour added.

It is a day to enjoy!

23th MAY day workshop 10 – 4pm

SHARPENED ITALIC tutor JAN MEHIGAN

At this workshop we will carefully look at the Italic script to ensure that we are doing it correctly. We will then then relax and make some changes to the Italic letter form. This is one of the absolute delights of doing calligraphy.

Sharpened Italic is fun to do and a joy to see when executed well. We can make the letters tall and pointed or make them stretched and wide. Spend a relaxing and enjoyable day learning how to manipulate your letters with confidence. Make the letters dance.

Please bring a piece of prose or poetry of about 20 words with which we can experiment with different Italic letter-forms. The work on the day can be in black on white or in colour. Later in the day for a stunning effect, you may wish to use Dr. Martin’s Bleed proof white gouache or Permanent white on black or coloured paper. This is suitable for all levels to enjoy.

19th SEPTEMBER day workshop 10 – 4pm

FOUNDATION HAND tutor MARION MACKENZIE

At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries Edward Johnston led the revival of calligraphy in the British Isles. He studied, in depth, certain manuscripts looking for the ideal one to begin his teaching.

On finding the clarity of the ‘Ramsey Psalter’ AD 974-986, he determined that he had found the script which would form the foundation of his teaching in this revival. Hence it became known throughout the newly burgeoning,calligraphic, rediscovered world as the ‘Foundation Script’

This workshop will introduce this lovely, relatively simple script to anyone wishing to study calligraphy. But also to enable the more proficient student to confirm their own interpretation of previous teaching.
