with Violet Smythe

We hope you will join us as Violet takes us on a journey looking at one of Ben Shahn’s  lettering styles, Bensgothic. She will show us her stylized variations and how she nests, stacks, and uses colour. This is an interactive program so you will have the opportunity to do some lettering. It is strongly suggested that you have a folded pen like the New Horizon
Nib (favoured by Yukimi Annand) or a Luthis Libelula or Tim’s Pen or a cola pen that can create fine line. If you don’t have any of these, you could opt for a stiff drawing nib
(pointed) or a Brause ¾ mm nib.
