The Letters in Circus

By Barbara Calzolari

Starting Date : 07 May 2022

Fees : HK$ 1,000 or US$ 130

Workshop Description

In this workshop, we will focus on learning how to write good letterforms, with pen and ink, and explore simple cursive as well as block letters. We will then move on to complete some flower pieces by following the detailed step-by-step instructions during the lessons.

This class is recommended for those who are afraid of fine point calligraphy styles and have no special knowledge of marker pen calligraphy. It is also suggested for those who want to take a different approach to learn to understand letters, shapes and how to play with them. We will draw them and make them flourish, embellishing letters by mixing styles such as block letters and cursive with simple and more elaborate, structured lines.

Very basic pointed pen calligraphy skill is required.

Topics to be covered:

1. Understand what are good letter shapes (cursive and block) and how to improve lettering skill

2. Basic strokes for letters and flourishing 

3. Minuscules and majuscules flourishing

4. Learn to write with coloured pens and create a flourished piece step by step
