Jan Pickett on the Hand Legende

July 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Black & white, Formal and Informal
(with a bit of colour if wished, just for good measure!!)

For all levels, so come and join the fun!

We are going to look at a style of lettering very loosely based on the Legende font.

This beautiful edged pen version is a flowing style combining the very low x-height of Legende, the springing arches and graceful letters of Italic, together with a little pen manipulation stirred in for extra good measure.

It is exciting, lively and fun to do. Working large and small, from automatic pens to tiny sizes, we will explore these cursive forms plus variations…so be ready to free up and flow.

There will be projects on hand and opportunities to work black on white, white on black even black on black. 
Colours can definitely be used if preferred.
