Description

Class Description:

In this 2-day study of Spencerian script, we’ll begin our exploration by mapping out the key concepts of this beautiful style of handwriting that was prominent in the United States during The Golden Age of Penmanship (1850-1925).


Stroke-by-stroke, we’ll learn the lowercase and capital letters and uncover the unifying nuances behind each letter group along the way. Once we’ve gained a deep understanding of the basic letterforms, we’ll take a look at the basic concepts of flourishing the capital letters.

This class will deepen your understanding and appreciation for this beautiful script and will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to continue your practice at home.

Supplies:

  • 3-4 of your favorite flexible pointed nibs (ex: Hunt 101, Zebra G, Leonard Principality EF, etc.)
  • Oblique or straight penholder
  • Black or brown ink (ex: Sumi, iron gall, wall nut, etc.)
  • 12" ruler
  • Pencil
  • Red and blue pen
