August One Day Workshop - Ronde with a Pointed Nib

Dear Members and Followers,



Ronde, sometimes referred to as French Ronde, was used in France in the 17th Century. 
We will commence the workshop using a traditional broad-edged nib. It is also planned that participants will make a small box, or at least start one, which will be decorated with the script. 

With Glenis Sheather
