Fall 2019 Workshop: Cascading Capitals with Suzie Beringer

Date: November 2nd & 3rd, 2019
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Location: North City Water District Office, Shoreline, WA

In this workshop we will begin by looking at mono-line Roman Capitals—working through their basic shapes.  Then with a series of carefully planned exercises we will begin to take these capitals on a ride by taking off their training wheels (guidelines) and letting them fly!  The end result will be a visual texture created by the cascading, trickling and scattering of letters—based on your design.

Suzie Beringer is an artist/calligrapher who makes her home in the Pacific Northwest.  She has a degree in commercial art with a lifetime passion for calligraphy.  She is a  designer, and talented artist who enjoys teaching.  Constantly exploring new possibilities and pushing herself creatively.  Suzie love to share her passion in mark making and design with others.  As an artist Suzie loves the challenge and discovery that lettering on different surfaces brings.  It has been said that if something around her doesn’t move quickly enough it may end up with letters on it.  You can see more of her work on Instagram: penstrokedesignstudio.
