Service Description

Date & Time: March 17, 2024 1:00 - 3:00 pm Medium: Calligraphy Level: Any level is welcome Instructor: Margaret Van Diest This session is a two hour introduction to the Uncial alphabet. It is all Capitals and at a constant 30 degree pen anle and very upright.It is the script that was written in the 8th Century AD and is dominant in the Book of Kells. You may wish to look this up to have an idea of what this alphabet is about! We will use felt markers to learn the hand (a calligraphic term) and then I will provide handouts and paper for this session and the felt markers that will be returned to Swintons after the class to keep costs reasonable for all. I will show you how to use a Pilot pen which is a 2 bladed steel nib that produces finer thins and thicks. Hope to see you there and we'll also get prepared for a Saint Patrick’s Day (or other) card. Supply List: - Ruler - Pencil - Eraser - Some photocopy paper Hope to see you then, Margaret Van Diest.
