Starting with a pencil and your own handwriting, Kathie McIlvride will teach how to build up the letters with a fine black marker. We will go on to create a whimsical Copperplate lettering using a pointed pen and ink. The pen will then be used with pearlescent ink for lettering on black paper. We will also experiment with a pointed brush marker, an alternative to the pointed pen. Everyone will take home their own versions of modern calligraphy.
