Pointing Towards a Calliarts and Workshop for November

Dear Members,

For our last month of the year please join us for a calliarts and workshop based on Pointed Gothic.


10th – Calliarts – An introduction to Pointed Gothic – Gloria Scott
In preparation for workshop on following Saturday 17th November, we will prepare for the full day workshop, beginning with guide lines for various nib widths, basic strokes and “shadow letterforms”.

17th – Workshop – Pointed Gothic – Gloria Scott
This is an attractive and versatile letterform. It has some very distinctive basic strokes that are not dissimilar to Batarde, with the internal counter space based on the Mandela almond shape. We will follow on from the preparatory exercises covered in our Calliart afternoon of the previous week, 10th November. As Christmas is just around the corner we will
"Create for Christmas", using this letterform for cards, bookmarks, gift wrap and other ideas for more formal or extended uses. This letterform has many applications, suitable for varying pen widths lettering. All levels of calligraphy are welcome.
