Janey Westin: Strength in Letterforms—Using the Chisel-Edged Brush (2-day workshop)


  • Edina Art Center 4701 West 64th Street Edina, MN 55435 United States (map)

Workshop is from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. both days.

Roman letterforms are the essential “bones” of all western calligraphic lettering. Participants will work with a chisel-edged brush to gain a better understanding and greater confidence in use of Roman letterforms. We will work on a fairly large scale—all the better to grasp why and where those thicks and thins occur; how a beautiful curve feels; and strong plus graceful
proportions. Good spacing will also be covered. We'll have fun with this ‘large-muscle’ lettering!
