Monoline Lettering Techniques with Cora Pearl @ Burnaby Sports Complex West
Mar 18 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm



Monoline lettering is a great way to learn new styles of lettering and to delve
in to the principles of lettering, layout, and design, without the added challenge
of working with complicated tools. In this class we will learn several styles
of monoline lettering that use B-nibs including the Art Nouveau lettering
of Rennie Mackintosh and the architectural lettering of Frank Lloyd Wright
among others. We will also explore different ways of working with letters
that can be applied to other calligraphic styles and tools. This workshop is
appropriate for all levels of experience and is ideal for those who are new to
lettering arts. This workshop is a condensed version of a full semester hand
lettering class that Cora created and teaches at Portland Community College
in Portland, Oregon.
