Calligraphy: Hand Lettering with the Folded Pen
The folded pen is a wonderful tool for hand lettering—it is capable of making very thin hairline strokes as well as thick dramatic strokes as well as a large range in between. Letters created with the folded pen feel dynamic and organic. There are endless possibilities for its use. In this workshop we will make a folded pen that we will use in class and we will learn at least six distinctly different styles of lettering that will help us explore what this type of pen can do. We will create a finished piece using the lettering learned in class. This class is ideal for calligraphers who want to explore playful lettering styles, graphic designers who would like to incorporate hand lettering into their designs and for lovers of hand lettering who want to learn more lettering styles.
No prerequisites, though some experience with calligraphy and/or hand lettering is helpful.
