Italic is a valuable script because of its beauty and versatility. If it has been a while since you studied Italic, you can bring your Italic letters in for a one-day tune-up. This workshop is for those who consider themselves beginners and also for those who wish to revisit the basics and revitalize their Italic.

Students will move through a variety of exercises to refresh and revive the shapes, the slope and the other details the Italic script. You can be assured of a more confident Italic at the close of day. We’ll look at a variety of very simple projects that use your calligraphy to easily share your skills with family and friends
