SCH Workshop: Whimsical Letters—The Playful Path to Romans with Christy Schroeder

On November 8, 2014 the Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) will be sponsoring the workshop, “Whimsical Letters—The Playful Path to Romans with Christy Schroeder” in Renton, WA.

Christy Schroeder Whimisal LettersAs calligraphers we instinctively love Roman letters…and often fear them, too!

This workshop will allow you to cast aside the intimidation of formal proportions and take up your drawing pen as we explore the playful side of traditional, formally drawn Roman minuscules and majuscules.

The workshop will begin by breaking the letters down into four basic shapes, making this a class for every level of experience.

For more information and the registration form, please view the workshops page on our website. Please join us for this fun and educational workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!
