In this workshop we go from slow to fast! We start with making Roman capitals with the broad-edged pen. We focus on good proportions, spacing, applying serifs, variations in letters and attention to detail and quality of form. All done in a slow concentrated manner of writing. We will use pen manipulation and pressure on the pen. After that we’ll gradually increase our writing speed and making our capitals in a more informal manner: big and small capitals, variations in proportions and single- and double-stroked capitals in a more gestural way. There will be demonstrations, tips and mostly individual attention (as much as possible) and printed instructions.

We’ll practice letters with character and strive for sophisticated calligraphy with refinement and lively detail.

If you are available to continue studying on Monday, September 24th, Elmo has agreed to add a third day to focus on layout of a short quote. Participation in the weekend workshop is a prerequisite for continuing to study on Monday, September 24, 2018.
