This course is aimed at calligraphers who have been working with pointed pen scripts consistently. It is aimed at those with a higher comfort level with a pointed flexible nib and an understanding and practical working knowledge of pointed pen alphabets
The aim of this course is to get you to reach higher levels of accuracy in letterform construction, letter shape, rhythmic composition and spacing. Internal balancing of majuscules, minuscules and flourishing will play a key role in assisting participants to progress using a sharpened understanding of the rules of decorative pen flourishing.
Executing the same letterforms and flourished shapes, with both a pointed flexible nib and a pointed brush, are key elements to the course and participants will be encouraged to go beyond their comfort zones and challenged to produce finer hairlines and smoother interlocking flourishes.
Balance, movement and rhythm underpin this course and you will be shown how to get from one point to the next to invariably end up back at the start.
This is not an easy course. It will be fun but it is also rigorous and demanding.
