Adding Colour to Monoline Romans with Wendy Cowley
We’ll do a quick review of basic Roman capitals and proportions and then we’ll look at a simple technique for adding colour to these letters. This program is suitable for all levels.
Round the Table Calligraphy is a FREE calligraphy class that is offered occasionally prior to our monthly meeting. Please e-mail us if you plan to attend so we have supplies. The class is open to those who can fit around our table.
Time: 6:30 to 7:15 at the February meeting,
Topic: Pointed Pen Basics.
Always wondering which pointed nib you should try? Wendy will have a large selection of pointed nibs for you to try. What people like varies widely and one person’s favourite is another’s nightmare. We’ll also go over some of the basic strokes which apply to many pointed pen scripts. Limited to those who can fit around a table or two! This session is
suitable for novice as well as experienced calligraphers
MEDIEVAL SCRIPT WITH DR. ERIK KWAKKEL
Dr, Kwakkel is a professor at UBC and will show us how he has examined medieval letter forms and traced their development over time. Dr. Kwakkel was previously at the University of Victoria and has done similar talks for the Fairbank Society. This promises to be an illuminating talk.
