Intro to Spencerian Script
Welcome to the beauty of America’s 19th century Spencerian Script! In this workshop, students will be introduced to the foundations of Spencerian writing: Movement, Curvature, Variability, and Contrast. Master Penman Michael Sull will explain the fundamentals of paper movement, paper position, posture, muscular movement, the oblique penholder, appropriate ink, pen points, and paper. Following this will be the lowercase and capital letters, the capital stem, cross-drill exercises, and techniques for making delicate shaded strokes. Join us in learning America’s signature writing style that gave handwriting a national identity, and became a legend!
No prior experience necessary.
