The Pointed Brush


Saturday, June 17

9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Sunday, June 18

9:00 am - 4:30 pm


The pointed brush is so versatile an instrument that a scribe could well consider spending the rest of his life on a desert island with only that tool to comfort him. In this class, we’ll learn how to hold the brush and control the pressure in order to get the different strokes on paper. We’ll improve our handskills while copying some alphabets, after which we’ll explore how to stimulate our inventiveness, for the goal is to prooduce all kinds of variations while staying consistent. Inevitably, this class will also deal with the principles of gestural writing.

Other Info
