No, not drawing on naked bodies... This workshop is is all about removing the fancy pens and inks, and stripping it back to nothing but pencil and paper. It's all about getting back to basics, and learning pure technique. The day will be filled with intensive pencil-on-paper exercises and demonstrations designed to get your head around the basics of sketching letters. We will cover key principles such as proportion, rhythm, visual balance, creating ligatures, fitting words and phrases together, alternate letterforms, flourishes and a whole lot more. As well, we will spend an extended period of time examining and recreating styles such as:

• Classical script 

• Casual script

• Brush script

• Signpainter Script 

• Blackletter

In the afternoon session, you will get the chance to create your very own handlettered example under the personal guidance of your tutor Wayne. And we'll do it all using the most basic tools possible: simple pencil and paper.

EQUIPMENT:
Paper is supplied, all you need is some graphite pencils, a ruler and a rubber.
