I will be teaching Calligraphy 101 at Ostgardr Schola in Yonkers, NY on November 5, 2011.
Here is a class description:
Interested in becoming a scribe? Don’t know where to start? Calligraphy is just one component of a scroll in the SCA. Together, there 3 major sections: the illumination (painting part of the scroll), the calligraphy (pretty handwriting) and the words (text of the scroll). This workshop will focus on calligraphy, discussing some tools and offering an introduction to three basic hands: Italic, Uncial and Batarde.
I hope to see you there!
