July 13, 14, and 15. This three-day course covers everything from the differences between Engrosser’s Script (American Roundhand) and Copperplate (English Roundhand), to learning the 26 minuscule and majuscule forms, to combining letters into words using complex letter-spacing models. There are no prerequisites for this class.
David’s workshop was inspiring – filled with information and nuances that really made me reflect on my own script and how / what could be changed and improved. Most importantly, it was not daunting. David’s gentle guidance made me want to put into action what we were learning.
Dreaming In Script is a twelve-section calligraphy training course detailing the traditional (and incredibly beautiful) pointed-pen style of calligraphy known as Engrosser’s Script. Students will learn everything from how to adjust their pen to crafting letters, words, and bodies of script for use in designs and as stand-alone art pieces.
I joined David’s Dreaming in Script Workshop while he was in HK in March 2018. His workshop is one of the most inspiring and helpful calligraphy workshops I have joined. His detail-oriented attitude allows him to explain everything about letter forms in a very clear and precise manner…I like this more liberal approach to learning calligraphy as calligraphy is not about just following one man’s style for me. I highly recommend whoever that is considering joining his workshop quickly grab your seat when seats are still available. One more thing to add to this is, watching him write in person is SO SOOTHING haha you will understand this if you have watched his Instagram videos. Being a fun person also made our workshop more awesome!
