The Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting’s (SCH) next meeting is Thursday, November 19th, at 7:00 pm Pacific via Zoom.
Lisa Tsang will be teaching a whimsical version of lettering using the B nib. The Speedball B-nib is a really versatile tool that can be used for a variety of fun scripts. Get comfortable with this monoline tool and then learn how to add weight and corners to your letterforms.
Here are the supplies needed:
– Handouts (to be sent with Zoom invite)
– A pencil and eraser
– Paper towel and pen wipe
– Favorite ink (walnut, Higgins, Pelikan, something that flows well)
– Speedball B-1, B-2 or B-3 nib and holder.
– If you don’t have B-nibs, you can use any monoline black bullet tip marker (Posca, Zig, other brand, not chisel or brush tip) and Black Fineliner (Micron, Faber Castell, extra fine tip Sharpie also works)
– Water container
– Paper (Layout bond, Rhodia, or bleedproof for pens)
– If we have time for some color blending, have three colors of ink, gouache, or Bisters
– Six well palette
– Short quote or word
