Sheila Waters is a master scribe and a master teacher. For over thirty years of her summer workshops, Sheila has taken scribes through their paces for a week or more of in-depth instruction in letterforms (historical and modern). Students have come from as far away as Australia and Japan for these intensive classes. And for many years, she taught numerous weekend workshops sponsored by calligraphy guilds throughout the USA and Canada and was a frequent instructor at the international conference held each summer. In Foundations, Sheila provides insightful analysis of forms and construction, taking the mystery out of learning calligraphy. You learn how to analyze a script, which helps you toward mastery of an alphabet. In the 110 pages of exemplar alphabets, instruction, and hints, Sheila shares with you the knowledge she has gathered over her years of study and practice. The presentation is honed by her long experience teaching calligraphers how to advance their skill and art. This 4th printing, much revised from the 2006 printing, now has a 16-page color gallery of Sheila's work.
