In this follow-up course to Beginning Spencerian, students will learn the time-honored techniques used to transform classic Spencerian writing into the flourished language of decorative script known as Ornamental Penmanship. Michael will show us methods for spiraling curves, enhancing negative spaces within letters and flourishes, duplicating shades into dramatic patterns, creating external line-endings, and the art of emphatic capitalization. In addition, he will introduce us to the higher level of alternate capitals known as “Twisters”, many of which are of his own design.
This is a rare opportunity to learn the most special techniques that became trademarks of the finest skilled Master Penman of a century ago.
***To enroll in this workshop, students must already have a basic skill level in Spencerian, or have participated in the Beginning Spencerian workshop.***
Includes all materials needed for class: a handmade wooden oblique penholder, three penpoints, one bottle of McCaffery Penman’s Ink, a book of matches, a small container for water, a paper towel, and a set of handouts (includes writing paper for the workshop).
