The last workshop for 2017 is the David Jones Script with Valerie Keevers.
David Jones born in London in late 1880’s became an Architect who while studying discovered the Trajan Column lettering. He taught himself lettering and developed his version of the Roman letters which he used for inscriptions mainly in Latin and mostly religious type works as he had converted to Catholicism. Moving to Ditchling he became friends with Eric Gill and Edward Johnston. His designs are often based on a square and use a mixture of capital and lowercase letters within the design which give a quirky yet very balance pleasing appearance. Another script to add to your portfolio.

1 colour Gouache. (not Black). (Watercolour can be used, gives softer effect.)
