    October 27th thru 28th (Saturday & Sunday) is fast approaching and you can expect a fun-filled two days devoted to discovering ways to revise the basic copperplate form to create new looks and personalities.  It will not be devoted to just one hand, or go letter by letter with the alphabet; rather we’ll see what we can do to create our own alphabet. Less experienced participants will be given a brief review of the basics.
    Here is the list of supplies to bring:
    • Oblique pen holder 
    • your favorite pointed pen nibs, such as Hunt 22, 56 or Gillott 303 or 404, the  G Nib or Leonardt Principal, or Zebra nib
    • a good quality layout bond paper, such as 9” x 12” Canson Pro Layout Marker
    • a sheet or two of good quality black and/or dark paper, like Canford or Strathmore ArtAgain
    • Sumi Moon Palace black ink, or McCaffrey’s  Black
    • Your favorite white medium, such as Bleed Proof White or McCaffrey’s Ivory 
    • mixing tray 
    • #2 pencils

    Laura Stevenson – Lost in Space

    Description:

    Calligraphy involves more than making marks on paper.  Many skills and considerations are involved in creating these marks to result in calligraphic pieces that convey the desired message.  This workshop will address one of these skills that challenges many calligraphers - spacing.  This summer at Seattletters, Ewan Clayton taught a workshop entitled “Calligraphy of the Heart: Part 2.”  He worked through a set of exercises in this workshop to help with understanding spacing and learning to relate marks to spacing.  Ewan has graciously given me permission to share this information with our Guild!

    Supply List:

    • Layout or practice paper (11x14 or 11x17 preferable; 8.5x11 OK if don’t have larger size)
    • Monoliner pen (any bullet or fine tip marker, small or medium size)
    • Pencil
    • Eraser

    From Carrie: “DANCIN” PEN” IS MY FUNKY TWIST ON THE ITALIC ALPHABET. IT ALL STARTED WITH THE BONE ALPHABET AND PEN MANIPULATION AND THEN RAN AMOK INTO ALL MY OTHER ALPHABETS. IT’S A NEW EXPRESSIVE ALPHABET THAT CONVEYS EMOTION AND FEELING WHEN YOU READ A PIECE OF WORDS THAT MOVE YOU. YOU WILL WRITE LETTERS THAT SAY WHAT YOU FEEL. IT’S A REAL TRIP INTO FREEDOM AND RELAXATION. THERE WILL BE LOTS OF “AHA’S”.
