|Gwyneth Hibbett||Thursday afternoon||1.00-3.00|
Students will study
and other more advanced alphabets.
There is scope for more experienced students to do other decorative techniques, such as
illumination or colourwork.
Students will require:
A4 or A3 pad of paper – Ideally cartridge paper with a smooth surface, of a reasonable
weight (more that 120gsm)
– Edding Calligraphy felt tip size 3.5
– A pen holder + pen nib/s – A good one to start with is a Mitchell size 1 nib (approx. 3mm). If
you wish to get other sizes too you could, perhaps nibs in sizes 2 and 3.5. If you are lefthanded, you need to ask for an oblique nib in this size.
– A bottle of ink – Recommended Pelikan 4001 black ink, or Parker Quink. Do not buy
drawing ink because it will stick in your nib and not flow smoothly after a few strokes.
– Sharp HB pencils, rubber, plastic ruler.
