Advanced Engrosser's Script Course

200.00

Starts July 13th, 2017

 

In this course, I will begin by demonstrating how to execute my mentor Master Penman William A. Lilly's signature flourished script. We will learn how to flourish Engrosser's Script capitals in ways that preserve the accuracy of letterforms, and reflect the natural beauty of the graceful curves. With my guidance, each student will choose their own quote and produce multiple drafts throughout the course. We will consider how to incorporate and connect flourished capitals into your piece, how to think about letter and line spacing, and how to use swells and hairlines to express the words you choose. 

Each week for three weeks, there will be a ~40 min video posted and your assignment of the week would be to put the instruction into practice. The first course will be posted on July 13th, 2017. You may choose to scan or take a photo of your homework and post it on the forum, where I will make suggestions on areas that can be improved. You will have 60 days access to the course so you may truly learn at your own pace.

Supplies List

  • 1 Oblique Holder 

  • 1 Inkwell

    • I suggested the dinky dips but if you already have an inkwell, please ignore the dinky dip suggestion. 

  • Old World Iron Gall, McCaffery Ink (Any Color), or Tom Norton Walnut Ink

  • Rhodia Pad, Dot Grid 8.25"x11.75"

  • 28lb laser paper (available at Staples)

    • This is a cheaper alternative for practicing. The downside is that you have to line the paper yourself. 

  • Protractor

    • Essential for drawing and checking the slant of your script. 

  • Ruler

    • The S798. C-Thru 12 Inch GRAPH Ruler I recommended on the John Neal list is a very useful tool to have. The transparent graph lining allows you to check your measurements easily. 

  • Nibs

    • Leonardt Principal and Gillott 303. If you have only used G nibs, please make sure to purchase each of the above. Gillott 303's quality control has been an issue so I would suggest to purchase a few to make sure that you don't have damaged nibs. Also if you choose to use Old World Iron Gall, I suggest to purchase multiple nibs as it is fairly acidic and will eat away at the nib faster even with frequent cleaning.

  • Paper Towel & Water to clean Nibs

  • Pencil

  • Eraser
