This series of mini workshops includes: Printable models and guide lines, and recordings available until July 31st.

If you have already practiced with your flexible nib and are looking to expand your repertoire of letter variations, these mini workshops are for you!

In this series of mini-workshops we will take the flexible nib used for Copperplate and use it to explore its potential and create new and exciting letterforms. I will guide you step by step to make the basic strokes, we will end up with an informal script that is modern but has the base of traditional letters. These highly original variations were created by calligrapher Michael Kecseg, and I greatly appreciate his generosity in allowing me to showcase his creations that I admire so much.

This series is composed of 3 mini workshops. In each session you will learn a lowercase alphabet with the following variations:

  1. Casual Script 
  2. Fraktur (Gothic) 
  3. Uncial 

Within each 3 hour session you will learn:

-Modulations and movements with the pen to create basic strokes.

-You will prepare the movements of your arm and hands to create the ideal pressure modulation for the construction of the letters.

-You will learn the bases, spacing, shapes and logic of each alphabet.

-You will learn step by step to build each letter of the lowercase alphabets. I will guide you and you can easily follow the ductus of each letter. The letters will help you create projects such as cards, pieces of art or implement some elements in other projects. There are endless possibilities!
