Instructor: Lorrie Frear
This interactive and informal session will introduce participants to letter families and proportional relationships between letter groupings in the Chancery Cursive (Italic) lowercase alphabet. Using calligraphy markers, participants will complete a cohesive, contemporary and flowing Italic alphabet during the three hour session. The procedural methods learned in the workshop can be applied to analyzing other calligraphic hands. This session will be fun, relaxed, and perfect for those with no prior calligraphy or lettering experience.
