Calligraphy - Pointed Pen Uncial

  • Farm Studio 29 Viitasalo Road South Somersby, NSW, 2250 Australia

This is a one day workshop suitable for beginners to calligraphy & intermediate students.

The Uncial script is based on early Greek lettering used in Christian manuscripts of the 4th century. In this workshop these roundhand Uncial letterforms are transformed into a modern Uncial script written with a flexible pointed nib. The thicks and thins of the letters are created by varied pressure on the split pointed nib. Beginners will receive step by step instruction, while intermediate calligraphers are given extended activities to work on. This light, flourished Uncial script is ideal for embellishing hand made cards, scrapbooking and modern calligraphic art.

Bring your own lunch. Drinks and home made cake provided.

Fee: $100/pp by Thursday 21st September
