Classical Hand Lettering Workshop for those who want to develop their understanding and signwriting practice with classical letter forms.
The Classical Hand Lettering Workshop is for those who want to develop their understanding and signwriting practice with classical letter forms, namely Roman and Copperplate Script. With one day dedicated to each, there will be inputs into layout, spacing, proportions, and the brushes required to execute the lettering. Using a mixture of basic and specially developed tools, participants will work in pencil and with the brush to practice the forms and create designs that incorporate both.
 
Contents
  • Layout and spacing of classical Roman lettering using the point system and specialist tools.
  • Painting the classical Roman letterforms using specialist signwriting brushes and the strokes required from them.
  • Layout of Copperplate Script lettering.
  • Painting Copperplate Script lettering using specialist signwriting brushes and the strokes required from them.
  • Laying out and painting a simple design incorporating both letterforms studied across the two days.
