      Saturday-Sunday, March 9-10 & 23-24  10am-12pm PST/PDT

      About the workshop: 

      Letters act as practical and useful signs, but also as pure and inner melody -Wassily Kandinsky

      Pure form, the quality of the line and the ornamental potential of writing - this is what it´s all about in this class. We will play with letterform variations, experiment with layout-ideas and then finish it all up with a spark of gold.

         Basic alphabet will be the Antiqua-letterforms - even if you haven´t tried writing them yet, your eye is used to them. We will use them and play with them, transform them and create new compositions. Step-by-step through the creative process up to a series of works.

         We will incorporate gold, will learn about some glittering effects, highlighting certain areas and a very easy way of gilding. Let´s have fun!

      The workshop will be recorded and available for two months.

      Experience Level: Beginner through advanced.

      4. Another chance to share and invite critique (always optional).

      We strongly encourage participants to join our private Facebook group, Let's Make Finished Pieces!, so that you can interact with other Study Group participants and you may request critiques from other members. If you need help with joining, please contact Kristi or Nan at SDworkshopsteam@societyforcalligraphy.org.

      Month's Project: We'll continue with our ongoing projects, and start new ones, at our own pace. Please consider sharing your progress during our "show and tell" at the beginning or end of the session.

        $100

        ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: 

        Developed by Edward Johnston (1872-1944) in the mid-1920s, Gothicized Italic is a versatile and practical Gothic hand that combines the advantageous elements of other Blackletter styles, such as the tall, slender forms of the Texturas, and the pointed character of the o's and arches that energize the Gothic Cursives and Batardes.


        This broad-edged style is also known as "Pointed Gothic," "Heavy Italic," and "Johnston's Compressed Hand."  The late Sheila Waters (1929-2022) further developed this style into a more vigorous and lively script, making it an immediate favorite among scribes all over the world.


        In this class, we will learn:

        Broad pen basics

        Characteristics that define Gothicized Italic as a Gothic script as well as what sets it apart from other Blackletter styles

        Stroke-by-stroke formation of minuscules and majuscules

        Spacing, simple variations and flourishes

        The workshop will be recorded and available for two months.

        SUGGESTED EXPERIENCE: Beginner through advanced.

        ABOUT NINA: Nina Tran is a calligrapher and a mom of 3 based in Los Angeles, CA.  She teaches pointed pen and broad-edged scripts with a focus on Copperplate, Spencerian, and Gothic scripts, including Gothic Cursive, Textura, and Fraktur.  When she is not writing at her desk, she enjoys reading, sketching, knitting, and hiking. 

        REGISTRATION: YOU MUST BE A MEMBER BOTH WHEN YOU REGISTER AND WHEN THE CLASS IS HELD.

Gordon in his “Unique & Eccentric Letters” in 1915 and further developed by Ross F. George, his Speedball partner, in their Speedball Textbooks.

        In this 4-hour workshop, we'll be taking our beloved basic monoline Roman letters out for a spin Speedball style!

        ABOUT  THE WORKSHOP: Good design, says artist Irene Au, is like a refrigerator—when it works no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it stinks. This workshop is designed to help artists of all skill levels who use letters and letterforms better understand composition and the elements and principles of design. You will come away with a better understanding of design essentials and some layout tips of special interest to lettering artists. The workshop will include many handouts, demos, and exercises to build your design skills. The three-session course will also include a review of work a couple weeks following the instruction to give you time to complete work. Details to Follow

        ABOUT MIKE: Mike Gold worked as a commercial lettering designer for over 35 years, mostly in the social expressions business. But his real passion is exploring the corridors of calligraphy that have been less traveled, the path where words and letters are design elements with which to play with line, shape and form, where creating a visual statement is more important than writing a readable text. In both his professional and personal art, Mike breaks traditional rules to create contemporary, non-traditional work.

        Mike has an M.A. in Visual Communications and has studied with many outstanding lettering and design masters over the years. Mike has taught around the country and at several international calligraphy conferences. His personal work has been featured in Letter Arts Review many times over the past 25-plus years. He has been a juror for the Letter Arts Review annual and his work is in many private collections, including the Berlin Calligraphy Archive. He is the author of Lines to Live By (available through John Neal, Bookseller), which is Mike's take on being a non-traditional calligrapher in the 21st century. 

        EXPERIENCE: Beginner to Advanced (Some lettering experience is helpful) All levels

        Workshop will be recorded and available for four months.

        Zoom invitation will be sent a couple days in advance.

        Cost: $150, paid by check or Paypal (see details below)

        REGISTRATION: You must be a member both when you register and when the class is held. Pay by check or PayPal. No refunds.  (Contact Kristi for the information on paying via paper check.)
