An excellent workshop for people who wish to be introduced to Spencerian Script, and also for those who have already been introduced to Spencerian but desire a refresher program in all the basics of this beautiful Penmanship style. Subjects covered will be: complete understanding of the Oblique Penholder, preferred inks, penpoints and Paper; the fundamental principles of Spencerian writing, including the foundations of Movement, Curvature, Variety, and Contrast; and Standard and Alternate forms of the lowercase and capital letters. No prior experience or skillis required.
Length of workshop: 1 day
Advanced Spencerian (also called Ornamental Penmanship)
Going beyond the basics of Spencerian Script, this workshop takes the students into the realm of elaborate capitals, refined techniques for extending curves and ovals, pen manipulation, and an introduction to Off-Hand Flourishing including line-endings and basic flourishing patterns for accenting basic Spencerian. Through these techniques, students will learn not only how to refine their penmanship skills, but by lecture and demonstration they will become familiar with the simple methods to turn their Spencerian writing into true Ornamental Penmanship with superb beauty and elegant gracefulness. Subjects include: extending curves and ovals; pen manipulation; multi-oval capitals; Twisters- the legendary capitals; theory of Off-Hand Flourishing, introduction to traditional patterns; line ending flourishes; Composition Writing; and using colored and iridescent inks to advantage. Students should have at least a Beginner’s experience or have had an introduction to pointed pen writing to take this class. If a student enrolls in the Beginning Spencerian class, this class would be an excellent follow-up class to take.
Length of workshop: 2 days (recommended)
This is a valuable workshop in non-Lettering Penmanship that shares all the techniques of creating the flourished line-and-shade designs that are unmatched for their gracefulness and incredible beauty. Specimens of Off-Hand Flourishing from America’s Golden Age of Penmanship (1850-1925) are legendary, and through this workshop, students will learn how easy it is to create this unique style of Penmanship. In truth, it is much easier to produce such flourished designs than the appearance would suggest. Subjects will include: pen manipulation techniques, negative and positive space considerations; basic/traditional patterns, creating extended hairline and shaded strokes, paper-turning methods, extending letterforms into flourishes, use of color/iridescent inks, creative designing; and techniques for accent flourishes.
No prior knowledge or experience is needed.
Length of workshop: 1 day
