Workshop Description

In this short workshop, we will learn about the interesting design possibilities offered by a type of paisley decoration that was used in the 16th and 17th century joint to calligraphic works. We are going to learn the basics of paisleys shapes and their variations first and then apply it to Copperplate Majuscules in three different designs types. Each type of decorated majuscules to match different uses according to your needs. We will learn how to apply the paisley decorations to the oval and soft shapes of our beautiful Copperplate majuscules, how to best match the interesting texture created by the paisleys to the elegance of Copperplate and how to fix mistakes while we design! Paisleys are a very versatile decoration and allow for many corrections, don’t be afraid. We have endless possibilities of colouring with modern materials and we will play with tones and shades that will make for even more interesting and varied design possibilities.
