Decorative and intricate manuscript capitals are built layer by layer. Each layer is easily accomplished with the aid of Risa’s individual color plates. You will receive a pattern via email to print onto Arches Text Wove before the workshop. To ensure we get through this in one day, we will all work with the same letter. Risa will begin with a project overview, a review of the materials and will demonstrate various painting techniques. We will then paint the base colors to round out the morning. The afternoon will proceed with decorative painting and tooling demonstrations and final ‘ooohs and aaahs’ for our finished illuminated letters.
PLEASE NOTE, time is 9am - 4:15. We'll start with a short period for announcements and time to say "hello" to each other, then Risa would like to have extra time to give us more information. Zoom invitation will be sent a day or two before the event.

Italics is the most admired style of calligraphy along with pointed pen scripts. But, sometimes they are a mystery. We will look at a traditional 5 pen-width high and 5 degree slant, then we will jump off the diving board and find more ways to gain enjoyment from these beautiful letters.

Flourishing means to flower, and must come from within. We assume we can’t because we are beginners, because we hesitate, because our hands are shaky, our lines imperfect, and man, that dern pointed pen is so persnickety. We are incredibly hard on ourselves. This kind of negative thinking chokes our ability to thrive, so my approach to flourishing begins with marveling first at the miracle you are, becoming a friend to fear, and then training the eye on what it needs to see to create flourishes - the OVAL. I’ll show you just how easy it is to spot opportunities for ovals to be made. We take our cues from the shapes and strokes already there in your letter forms. We’ll train the eye to work from micro to macro, dissecting space into simple shapes of counterbalance and we’ll work slowly enough to give the eye time to spot opportunities to flourish as you are moving.
