Pencil Gothics with Gwyneth Hibbett

February 12 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This workshop takes a familiar tool – the pencil – to practice and create gothic lettershapes and use them in combination with a variety of different artistic effects. 

The versatility of pencils and their range of “hardnesses” give the calligrapher scope for shading and many different textures, which can take your lettering in different directions. 

Soft graphite greys give a subtlety that the sometimes the harsh black ink of ‘blackletter’ doesn’t, and the ease of adding some pencil embellishment can re-ignite a love of Gothic
