Large Italic Using Automatic Pens Calligraphy Workshop

calligraphy workshop large italic

Writing letters at a large size increases calligraphic confidence and enhances hand skills. Using the larger sizes of Automatic pens is a great way to achieve this.  In this large italic using automatic pens calligraphy workshop we will:

  • Practice a rhythmic texture of lines as a way into making letters.
  • Look at pen manipulation and how to make an easy transition between thick and thin strokes.
  • Develop a condensed, sharpened italic style.
  • Having developed a rhythm, look at ways of breaking it to create tension between letters or within a word or larger piece.
  • Use blended coloured inks and the addition of fine lines and filled counter spaces to create finished designs.

Suitable for a 1 or 2 day workshop
