  • Modern Calligraphy Workshop with Lydia Batten

    It's the phenomenon you see everywhere these days--where calligraphy meets cursive handwriting! Everyone will walk away with their own interpretation of how to achieve this style based on each person's own writing style! If you have studied Italic lettering, or have some previous lettering/calligraphy background and have spent time learning 'the rules', then this is a chance to see how you can start to 'break' the rules! Don't know how to write in cursive? Not a problem--you will pick it up easily enough! We will look at examples of what is out there, and then study, examine, practice certain basic common forms and methods, and use a particular type of marker to get the style going. From there you can create your own letters and maybe a final piece! This workshop is a quick, intensive foray into a popular new trend in calligraphy. Basic supplies (marker, some different paper samples, and some exemplars) will be provided in this 2 hour workshop. There will be the chance to try out other tools as well throughout the class for those interested in taking a deeper plunge.
