Description

An ancient lettering style with a fresh look. Add something extra special to greeting cards and gift tags. Great opportunity to learn with a friend or family member. Wherever Latin and Greek were written from the 4th to the 8th centuries AD, there was Uncial, from Africa to Europe to England. Come to be introduced to a simplified Uncial script. It has only an upper-case form, so there are only 26 letters to learn!

Special 2-for-1 pricing for this workshop only! Ages 9 to 13 with a participating adult welcome! Ages 14 to 94, come and bring a friend or family member!

Instructor Information

Ramona has been a lettering fan since she was a little girl with a pad of newsprint and her Crayola crayons. She brings enthusiasm and her background as an elementary school teacher to her calligraphy instruction. Ramona currently serves as the president of the Calligraphic Arts Guild of Toronto.

Materials

Paper, ink, and penholders with nibs will be provided for the afternoon. Optional: The Itoya Doubleheader marker works well for Uncial and is found in a variety of colours at art supply stores such as Curry’s and Above Ground. The 2.4 mm Pilot Parallel Pen also suits.
