Foundational: Back to Basics

When

9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Description

The foundational hand isn't as plain and boring as you think it is. It is one of the most important hands because It is often used as a model for many contemporary lettering and typefaces. This style is frequently used for large areas of text because it is very legible and readable. The foundational hand is based upon the 10th century English Carolingian and was revived and developed by calligrapher Edward Johnston in the 20th century. We will concentrate on the fundamental structures of the foundational minuscules and the simple roman capitals that match. We will be writing the entire time, but there may be time to apply the foundational to one broadside. All levels welcome.
