This calligraphic hand is a perfect combination of the gothic blackletter and italic. It is a wonderful variation that brings a bit of life to the rigid lines of the blackletter. It may well become your favourite “go to” hand. Registrants should already have some calligraphic experience before embarking on the Gothicized Italic journey. You may continue with your 3.8mm Pilot Parallel Pen or a dip pen with Speedball C2 nib and ink. Worksheets and paper will be supplied for the first class and we will be discussing different paper options that work with our ink. Homework will be assigned weekly for the benefit of practice only. This course includes instruction, demonstrations and fun calligraphic projects, with discussion around tools and best practices.
