Masterclass Introduction to CAlligraphy with ChalkInk - Austin
Sat 6 May 2017, 10:00 – 14:00 CDT
Open to Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced students.
In Conjunction with ChalkInk
This workshop will introduce you to the world of calligraphy and hand lettering. It is a practical day of looking at some of the scripts discussed in the lecture (the night before - attendance to the lecture is not a prerequisite but would be helpful). The principal aim of the workshop is to get you accustomed to tools and what they can do, as once you know what the tool is capable of, learning how to apply it makes the learning of a particular script considerable easier. We will be using products supplied by ChalkInk and seeing how these products interact with each other. But more than that, how they can be used on non-traditional surfaces like glass, walls, blackboards, this is a different skill to working on paper and in the class we will cultivate confidence in both working on these non-traditional surfaces and on in writing at larger sizes. The class will look at both traditional and contemporary lettering styles.
