Beginning Calligraphy – Capitals: Class 1
with Patti Paulus, Calligrapher
Patti is aways thrilled to share her love of letters so why not add capitals to your lettering skillset! In this class you will learn the foundations of strong calligraphic capital letters. (And remember, you don’t have to have good handwriting to learn calligraphy!) The workshop focus will be on creating Roman Capitals with only 6 basic strokes written with a brad edged tool. The perfect addition for those who’ve already taken the Italic class, each student can expect to receive several exemplars (templates), a notebook and the opportunity to communicate with Patti after the class for additional help and/or critique. Calligraphic writing tools will be available for your use with an option to purchase at the end of the workshop. If you took Patti’s Italic Class 1 and purchased a Pilot Parallel Pen, please bring it with you. Plan to slow down and meditatively practice the flow of black ink on paper to create beautiful letters.
Actively working as a lettering artist since 1982, Patti practices calligraphy as an art-form and uses hand-rendered letterforms in her graphic design work. She also paints, draws, is a bookmaker, and her love of charcoal opens up fresh avenues of expression for her.
