VALLICIERGO MAJUSCULES

This class is for those who have some experience with a pointed pen - or for those who have just completed the morning class!  We will hit the ground running in the expectation that everyone knows how to use their pen and understands the basic strokes of the copperplate miniscule letters.

In this class we will study the majuscule alphabet of Vicente F Valliciergo - a late 19th-century calligrapher from Madrid whose book contains a particularly elegant alphabet.  

We will approach structure, proportion, and shade weight with great care, identifying the forms that can be worked on as a group and spending most of our time on perfecting the basic strokes that are used to build up most of the alphabet.  We will also touch on using whole-arm movement to achieve even ovals and firm lines. 

The Valliciergo majuscules are difficult to master, but very flexible, and will work beautifully in almost every copperplate piece.  The handouts for this class also contain flourished versions of the majuscules for the advanced students - or for the beginners who feel like a challenge.

The goal of this session is to equip you to break down the proportions yourselves and further your study once you are home. 

As usual at the CoWork Co, places are limited to 12 only.  

To bring:  Your oblique holder and preferred nib.

Provided:  Paper, exemplars, instructions, and ink - everything else that you need.  Also, afternoon tea.  (If you have attended the introductory class in the morning, you will already have everything that you need.) 

This workshop runs from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.  Please be on time - we have a lot to cover and we won't be able to run late!
