About this course

This course offers an opportunity to study the background to modern day calligraphic scripts. The Italic script is based on 16th Century Humanist hands. You will consider historic and modern examples and experiment using different media, tools and materials.

This course will introduce the broad edge pen* and cover the basics of writing a formal script, using ink and colour and how to approach the basic design elements. Each student will have an opportunity to select a modern Renaissance inspired project to work on and complete a calligraphic design.

* The broad edge pen is a specialist Calligraphy dip pen - a fountain pen is not suitable.
