A Few More Responses


Who Are You?
Glenis Sheather

What Position/s do you hold at Calligraphy Southscribes?
Membership Secretary

How long have you been involved with Calligraphy?
11 Years

Why Calligraphy?
I have always been interested in writing.  At the risk of sounding positively ancient, the reason for that probably stems from learning to do “running writing” with dip pen, ink and slope card at primary school and then using dip pen and ink again for Pitman’s Shorthand when I did a Secretarial Course at Business College.

Favourite Hand and Why?
Copperplate.  Not only do I love its elegance, but once I get into a rhythm I find the “pressure-on-pressure-off” technique very relaxing.

Favourite Piece of Calligraphy Gear and Why?
My roll-up pen holders.  I like being able to place my pens in size order in their individual compartments.  Not only does it keep them safe, but it makes picking out the correct pen easier.

Most successful Calligraphy tip?
Calligraphy is not handwriting, rather you are drawing the letters, so take your time.

You would like to see Calligraphy Southscribes where in one year’s time?
I would like to see Calligraphy Southscribes have more members involved in our activities.

What Position/s do you hold at Calligraphy Southscribes?
 Publicity Officer

How long have you been involved with Calligraphy?
 More years than I care to remember.

Always been interested in beautiful writing 

Favourite Hand and Why?
Uncial because you only need two guidelines 

Favourite Piece of Calligraphy Gear and Why?
Sheaffer cartridge pen, I always seem to go back to them, as it dries so quickly and rubbing out guidelines can be done so much quicker. 

Most successful Calligraphy tip? 
Use a candle on envelopes after writing, for waterproofing, to test try and hold under water. It works! But only if the ink is dry.
