Flourishing Italic Capitals, weekend workshop


  • Primrose Park Matora Ln Cremorne, NSW, 2090 Australia

This is a two day workshop over one weekend, 10am to 4pm each day.

Here is the workshop requested by members and students from my beginners Italics workshop earlier this year with the Australian Society of Calligraphers (ASoC).

Day One: We will focus on the Italic capital letter shapes and proportions, then move into techniques of adding and adjusting the letters for a flourished look. We will explore a range of flourishing styles to use with this script. Finishing the afternoon with designing your own flourished Italic monogram.

Day two: We will focus on exploring contemporary and traditional layouts with the same quote. This will include use of colour and mixed media.

To get the most out of this workshop, I advise that you have completed a course or workshop in an Italic miniscule hand.
