Service Description

(Swinton's Art Supplies) In this 2 hour session we will learn the Blackletter alphabet which was used (with several variations) in the 11th Century and forward. The letters are formed as a rectangular shape and are written closely together thus the name Blackletter. It is a formal alphabet and mainly used for invitations and longer passages but it can also be a surprise in a funny quote or poem. We will first do the alphabet using a felt marker and the lines that I will provide and then try real calligraphy pens ( time providing) to do a short quote or word on card stock. This is an introductory calligraphy workshop, everyone is welcome.
