CALLIGRAPHY for BEGINNERS - "Uncommon Uncials"


On this day, 13 October, you will discover the pleasure of writing with the broad-edged pen.  Looking at calligraphy history, we will consider the beautiful St Cuthbert Gospel, from the Wearmouth-Harrow monastery, written sometime before 716AD.  Calligraphy techniques:  after practising how to make the letters, we will adjust a few elements of the Uncial script to make it more modern, then write out a short quotation.
