Intermediate – Advanced students; must have previous Copperplate/Spencerian experience
From Handwriting and History to Contemporary
(a journey with Pointed Pen under influence)
In this workshop for already experienced students currently working with the pointed pen (previous
Copperplate or Spencerian students) we will use both handwriting and historical manuscripts to enable
student’s to influence their own personal lettering styles.
We will use various sources and influences
from individual handwritten marks, manuscripts (including gothic related styles and the work of Jan van
den Velde) to create letterform interest through texture, form and flourish, stretching the capability of
the pointed pen from its more traditional use.
Through various exercises, students will create their own
style with more original lettering results, all the while improving their pen handling and movement skills.
Materials: There may be a small fee to cover student notes and additional materials.
Students will receive a materials list for usual pen and paper materials.
