LAKE DISTRICT

Two courses:
Six days of historical and modern Italic Calligraphy

Six days of historical and modern Italic Calligraphy.  An intensive course experience with Barcelona-based calligraphers, Keith & Amanda Adams, at a stunning Lake District location.
Learn to write scripts based on Spanish and English historical sources including José Casanovas and Queen Elizabeth I along with modern interpretations. We will make our own pens and enhance our writing with beautiful flourishes and decorative techniques. Beginners are welcome; advanced scribes will receive more exacting instruction.

BRING (if you can): Ordinary fountain-pen ink (Quink, Waterman, Pelikan 4001—NOT «India ink»), pen-holder, pencil, eraser/rubber, scissors/cutter, ruler, set-square/triangle, & your preferred textes. If you don’t have these materials, don’t worry: we will have them to share at the course.
