Beginner’s Calligraphy: Basic Italic Script, hosted by Inkt.

Elise Fountain-Smith, well known across calligraphy educators, is coming up from Wellington to teach this full day workshop. We’ll provide students with everything they need.

Students will learn basic italic script skills, with an emphasis on the lower case and a short time on upper case and numeral, correct use of the calligraphy pen and the right way to form the letters.

By the end of the workshop, students will:
- Have a basic understanding of the italic script, especially the lower case letters
- Be able to hold the pen on the right angle
- Be able to describe the starting place and the number of strokes for each letter
- Know how to analyse and compare letters with examples given
- Feel encouraged to practise and improve letter forms at home

Class cost includes supplies for each student:
- Pilot 3.8mm parallel pen
- Extra pack of cartridges
- A3 Zeta layout pad
- 2 Staedtler pencils and eraser

Coffee and tea will be provided. Students will be responsible for their own lunch.
Please note, class size is limited to 8 students to ensure each student is provided with sufficient one-on-one attention.
