The Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting’s (SCH) presents The Many Faces of Italic, a two day workshop with Carol DuBosch. The workshop will be held on November 14th and 21st from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Zoom. 

Italic is the most valuable script to any lettering artist because of its beauty and versatility. Italic can be written very simply, or elaborately with flourishes. If it’s been a while since you studied Italic, you can bring your Italic letters in for a tune up. 

If you are new to calligraphy, this is a great opportunity to add this elegant and classic script to your repertoire. This workshop is for those with some experience with the broad edge pen as well as for those who wish to revisit the basics of Italic in order to revitalize their Italic letters.

Each student will receive individual attention and move through a variety of exercises to refresh and revive the shapes, the slope and the other details of the Italic script. The class will cover simple Monoline Italic done with a pencil, basic edged pen Italic, and formal flourishes. You can be assured of a more confident Italic after the two-day class. We’ll look at a variety of very simple projects that use your calligraphy to easily share your skills with  family and friends. Some experience with a broad-edged pen is needed.
