This class meets on 2 Saturdays: April 22 & May 6, 2017
The Foundational hand was developed by Edward Johnston in the early twentieth century as a beginner’s alphabet, the foundation (basis) of a calligraphic education. Based on tenth century English Carolingian, Foundational has evolved in usage from a student script to an elegant, legible hand, suitable for both small manuscript calligraphy and large, bold writing for signs and posters. This workshop will present the anatomical structure of the Foundational hand in a step-by-step method for both beginners and more experienced calligraphers.
