Beginner's Guide to Beautiful Italic Handwriting

You love pens, now learn to write beautifully with them! In this class you will be introduced to Cursive Italic writing with a flat nib. Designed during the Renaissance, this handwriting style is making a comeback for its beauty, speed and elegance. The basic shape of the Italic letter, joins, flourishes and use of a flat nib pen will be covered. We will use a flat felt-tipped pen, and options for calligraphy fountain pens will be discussed. If you have a flat nib fountain pen 1.1 mm or smaller nib, bring it (or buy one at the show), but it is not necessary. This class is a good introduction to calligraphy. All levels welcome. Supplies and handouts are included in the class fee.
