    SECOND SERIES ADDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.

    Sessions will be recorded and available for one month, following the last session: Four Wednesdays. May 4, 11, 25, June 1, 1:30-3PM. (No class on May 18.)

    ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:Throughout the long reign of Queen Elizabeth I, England enjoyed a surge in art, science, literature, and new world explorations. Meanwhile, existing correspondence sent to and from the Queen revealed conspiracies, plots, proposals, assassinations, beheadings and other intrigues that characterized her reign. The letters signed by the queen were written mostly by secretaries who were entrusted with protecting the interests of the queen and keeping her secrets—hence the word secretary. The handsome and modestly flourished hand they wrote is quite readable and easily learned once several unfamiliar letterforms are explained. It is also accepting of the idiosyncrasies of one’s own handwriting. In this class we will explore the script, the form of the letter itself, and ways of folding the letters for dispatch. Finally, as a form of continuing practice, we will dispatch letters of our own.

    BROAD-EDGED EXPERIENCE NEEDED

    Description - Paste paper designs have been used for centuries to decorate book covers and papers. A close relative of the finger-paintings of our youth, the basic paste paper technique involves dampening a sheet of paper, coating it with colored paste, and then drawing various implements through the paste to create deceptively sophisticated designs. It’s simple and fun!

    Join us for a creative time making your own unique hand-painted paste papers. Paste and paint will be supplied along with some Tyvek.

    Please bring:                                                                                                           Your own combing tools                                                                                         Your own papers (i.e. Arches Text Wove or any water-tolerant papers)

    I think the words MAJESTIC FORMAL ROMANS scares us calligraphers we think we are not ready for them until we learn and practice many other calligraphic hands. and BUT I believe studying these Roman forms (in a casual way) helps us with all calligraphic hands! The prerequisite for this class is a lot of patience and being able and willing to work slowly and play with our tools. No judgements, just loving these Big Guys and playing. Experience with the broad edge pen will be helpful.

    Guest Speaker:

    Dr. Vanessa WilkieWilliam A. Moffett Curator of Medieval Manuscripts & British History at the Huntington Library and Gardens

    "Emblems, Icons, and the Elites who Loved Them: Decorated Manuscripts in Early Modern England"

    In 16th and 17th century England, writers, poets, and artists from various social stations and homelands moved to London to court the patronage of the aristocracy.  They intended to woo their elite clientele by filling the pages of books and manuscripts with vivid heraldic devices, emblematic icons, mottos and verse, thus creating constellations of visually striking iconography.  This talk explores these codicological monuments of honor that complicate our modern conventions of genre.

    Dr. Vanessa Wilkie curates the renowned collections of medieval manuscripts and British History at the Huntington Library and Gardens.  She has published on female editorial practices, patronage, and death rituals. Her forthcoming book A Woman of Influence: The Spectacular Rise of Alice Spencer in Tudor England (Atria/Simon & Schuster) will be available April 2023.

    PRESENTER: Sue Greenseth


    SPONSOR: South Los Angeles Chapter (Solar Nibs)

    COURSE DESCRIPTION:

    Travel back several decades and enjoy these unique and whimsical alphabets that became popular in the 1970s. These hands greatly influenced many calligraphers at the time, but they are just as relevant today as they were then.  

    In this 4-hour workshop, the focus will be to move the pen angle to create interesting letter strokes. Two alphabet variations will be introduced. Through study and practice of these unique shapes, students may be inspired to take their own lettering to a new level.

    ABOUT SUE GREENSETH:

    Sue Greenseth is a calligrapher and lettering artist in Portland, Oregon. In the 1970s, she moved from Central Illinois to Corvallis, Oregon, and found herself in the middle of a calligraphic renaissance. She has a broad range of creative pursuits. Early in her career, she taught calligraphy and freelanced as a commercial lettering artist for world-renowned clients. In the 1990s, when e-commerce was in its infancy, she became a designer for her own online jewelry company. These days, Sue continues to teach calligraphy as well as practice as a full-time artist. She loves breathing life into letterforms and animating words with a pen.

    About this workshop: In our Who's Afraid of Rudolf Koch? workshop, we explored Rudolf's world of expressive gothic letterforms.  Now it's time to have a closer look at his unique use of color and ornament. He had his own style in decorating by creating powerful ornaments and initials. Let's find out what it's all about & how we can use them for our own contemporary gothic projects.
      If you've already been a student in Who's Afraid of Rudolf Koch?, you're a Rudolf Koch addict anyway,  or maybe you have some experience with gothic lettering? Perfect! This class will add some extras to your gothic lettering.
    Level: intermediate, must have some knowledge in Gothic/Blackletter

    Saturday, September 24, Time: 9:45 AM - 2:00 PM, with approx. 30 minutes for lunch.

    ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: Romanesque Stitch books are beautiful and unusual exposed-spine books. The workshop instruction is based on Shereen LaPlantz’s description of the binding in Bound and Lettered magazine. Romanesque Stitch books open flat, which makes them perfect for sketchbooks, cookbooks, guest books, and journals. In this workshop, we will make a book, approximately 5 ½” x 6 ½”, with boards covered in decorative paper and containing a text block of 158 pages of text weight paper.  

    Students may purchase an optional kit for $30 which includes paper, board and thread. This price covers USPS domestic shipping. Registrants will all receive a detailed supply list of tools and materials (glue for example) students will need to gather and will also give dimensions for the materials in the kits for those who don’t purchase them. Some preparation before class will be required and described fully (cover the board with decorative paper and fold the signatures).  

    The focus of the instruction will be the Romanesque Stitch; basic bookbinding information will not be given much attention. For this reason, the workshop may be more approachable for those with some bookbinding experience. However, beginners are more than welcome! 

    WORKSHOP WILL BE RECORDED AND AVAILABLE FOR ONE MONTH.

    REGISTRATION: You must be a member both when you register and when the class is held. Pay by check or PayPal. No refunds.  

    Cost $35. 


    OPTIONAL KITS for purchase at $30 (domestic shipping only). To help ensure timely delivery, the cutoff date to order is August 31, 2022.

    Enrollment is limited to current paid Society for Calligraphy members only. Your membership must be current at time of sign-up as well as when class is held. If your membership lapses, you become ineligible and your space will be filled from the waiting list.

    About the workshop: My teachers were the Medieval artists who made the manuscripts that enthrall us today. Having deciphered their techniques by scrutiny and experiment, I employed their ingenious improvisatory decorations in my calligraphy work for decades.
These are the easiest and most improvisational Versal techniques, which is why they are so abundant in Medieval manuscripts. Like any improvisatory style, they have basic rules, but once these simple rules and methods are mastered, then the designs can grow organically.
