Sponsored by FRI, FEB 4  6:30-8PM PST

This month we’ll work through simple broad-edged Romans. We’ll review the letter structure as we write. We’ll talk about different writing fluids that make our practice and use of the letters more enjoyable. Our project goal for in-between sessions will be a colorful page of letters. We’ll talk about some simple uses inspired by recent SfC workshops.

This session will be led by Kristi Darwick. These Study Group sessions are not recorded.


  • General calligraphy supplies
  • Practice Paper: such as, graph paper—8 squares per inch, layout/marker paper, printer paper, computer print-out paper, or whatever paper you prefer for writing with ink.
  • Straight holder
  • Favorite writing fluid—walnut ink, gouache, Bister, or fountain pen inks are some recommendations.

For using the guidelines that go with the exemplar,
