May 16-17, 2020: Stretching Your Italic (aka: Italic Textures) with Diane von Arx

from 165.00

Instructor: Diane von Arx

Skill Level: Enough familiarity with Italics that you can write without an exemplar. This class is not for total beginners, but advanced beginners are welcome.

Online Registration Opens:

  • Members: Monday, December 16, 2019, at 10:00 am Central Time

  • Non-Members: Tuesday, December 17, 2019, at 10:00 am Central Time

Where: Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 North Knox Avenue, Chicago

When: Saturday 5/16 and Sunday 5/17, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Central time

Supply Fee: There will be a copy fee payable at the workshop.

We will begin by strengthening our existing italic hand, and discuss letter, word and line spacing. Participants should be familiar enough with Italics that they need not refer to exemplars. (Bring with you a recent sample of work using a basic italic hand.)

We will polish your lettering, compress, extend, slant and generally experiment with textures all by using the one basic alphabet. We will discuss the suitability of the variations in use for a specific project and consider the appropriateness of textures as they relate to individual texts, a real eye-opening experience for participants.
