2022 WORKSHOPS & STUDY SESSIONS

 

15th JANUARY – Day Workshop 10am – 4pm

FOUNDATION HAND – Tutor CATHY STABLES

The Foundation script – so called by Edward Johnston – is a very useful formal hand for calligraphers to master.  Having a circular ‘o’, many of the letter forms have a similar structure and are closely interrelated.

We’ll have a brief look at its roots in the Ramsay Psalter and at various contemporary examples before going on to put letters and words together.

For those familiar with Foundation, other forms of it can be explored.

12th MARCH – Day Workshop 10am – 4pm

MODERN GOTHIC – Tutor JULIA BAXTER

Working through some basic Gothic minuscules and the main characteristics, we will then explore ways of adding life, movement and informality to bring these wonderful letters out of the middle ages. Their dense texture and rhythms are perfect for modern calligraphy.  An optional fun project will finish the day.

DECORATED LETTERS – Tutor JAN PICKETT

This workshop is based on my recently published book ‘Decorated Letters’ when we work
with both drawn and calligraphic letterforms.  Decoration will be added in, on and around
letters using a variety of creative techniques using watercolour, pastels and coloured pencils to produce many delicate effects, guaranteed to add sparkle to your pages.

There will be time for individual projects using a wealth of exciting ideas.
