The Foundational Hand is the ideal script when embarking on learning calligraphy as it underpins the lettering in many other calligraphy scripts. It is a simple and elegant script and has many uses when writing calligraphy.
In this full day workshop Maggie Salter, expert calligrapher from Kapiti, will teach you the basic skills, with an emphasis on the lower case and a short time on upper case and numeral, correct use of the calligraphy pen and the right way to form the letters.
By the end of the class, you'll:
- Have a basic understanding of the foundational hand, especially the lower case letters
- Be able to hold the pen on the right angle
- Be able to describe the starting place and the number of strokes for each letter
- Know how to analyse and compare letters with examples given
- Feel encouraged to practise and improve letter forms at home
Cost: $120. Class cost includes supplies for each student:
- Pilot 3.8mm parallel pen
