SPENCERIAN BELLS AND WHISTLES

ORNAMENTAL SPENCERIAN CAPS & VARIATIONS

Thursday, October 21  and Friday, October 22

11:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT (East Coast United States)

The class Spencerian form is quite beautiful, but by adding well formed and executed flourished capitals, the possibilities are endless! In this workshop, we will study a variety of beautifully decorated capitals, learning how to construct them by adding additional layers to the basic form of the letters and varying the placement of the dramatic shading. Techniques such as repeated ovals, spirals, alternate ending and beginning forms will complete our study of the capitals.

Learning the strokes of a  simple cartouche design will complete the class.
