Workshops in Engrosser’s Script
Dreaming In Script is a trilogy of workshops that introduces attendees to the five principal strokes of Engrosser’s Script writing. This workshop is built off of my belief that all script writing can be isolated into its individual elements and trained in small, modular steps. With this modular approach, attendees find themselves equip to tackle any project because they understand, fundamentally, that every letter is only as strong as its weakest stroke.
Dreaming In Script – Part I
Saturday, March 25th, 9:00am-4:00pm
at Hive & Hum in Santa Cruz, California.
Early Bird Pricing ends 2/24!
Dreaming In Script, Part I is a beginner workshop designed around introducing aspiring calligraphers to the five foundational shapes used in Engrosser’s Script calligraphy. Throughout this full day class, students will learn to identify, diagram, and create beautiful strokes which can be applied towards beautiful letters. Rather than focusing on learning A-Z, this class helps to identify the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of each piece of every letter. By the end of the afternoon, students will understand how to efficiently deconstruct any letter they are interested in, and create it by focusing on small parts which can be easily learned in isolation.
*Beginner supplies are provided in this workshop, so all you have to do is show up! Feel free to bring your own oblique holder if you have something specific that you prefer.
David’s teaching methods have resulted in some pretty impressive results as evidence by his students. In my opinion, he is one of the finest modern day practitioners of Engrosser’s script.

Team building through calligraphy
A weekend calligraphy retreat can help to clear the mind and force us to think outside of our own heads. These workshops utilize partner activities while introducing attendees to challenging exercises surrounding script writing. In this workshop, we discuss calligraphy as a therapeutic outlet and explore how regular practice can help to balance an otherwise fast-paced lifestyle.
By inquiry only. Private full and half day workshops available throughout the United States. All materials provided.

Comments from past students
I’ve been studying calligraphy for a number of years, but I have never had anyone explain the fundamentals of Engrosser’s script as thoroughly as David did in this class. I wish I had begun my calligraphy journey with this course!

I was so thankful to meet David at the Foundations Workshop in NYC! David is exceptionally gifted and his love of calligraphy is so apparent. He is so warm and friendly, which makes for good chats and even better learning! You know that teacher you really like because they’re very chill and you can tell they love the subject they’re teaching- yup that’s David!
