Event description

Description

This class meets on Sunday: August 6, 2017: TO BE CONFIRMED!

10:00 am to 4:00 pm (or later)

This workshop is designed to explore the beautiful lettering style of Spencerian Script, the only lettering style that is uniquely American. Designed by Platt Roger Spencer in the 1800’s, we will explore the gracefulness of nature’s forms that inspired Mr. Spencer. The workshop will include study of the lower case, the upper case, simple off-hand flourishing and using letterforms as borders. This system of writing is still very relevant today. Brides frequently request elegant and graceful, Spencerian Script.

Spencerian script is a pointed pen alphabet built on 4 simple principals and 7 stroke forms. We will start with pencil and work our way up to pen and ink. We will cover all the basic letterforms and play a little with capital variations that make this lettering style so unique. This class is designed for all skill levels. It is most frequently written with an oblique penholder but experience with an oblique penholder is not necessary. If left-handed you may prefer to use a straight penholder.
