This one day workshop will be a gentle introduction to the (12th / 13th cent.) decorative Versal capital letter and modern variants.
We shall be working with the 'normal' and conventional Versal letter. First in pencil before moving on to pen and ink or gouache. There will be many short and helpful exercises and projects throughout to show why this major capital and colorful letter lasted for over 500 years. It was first used as a functional and beautiful 'signpost to the reader' before being used in important words and opening sentences and paragraphs.
