It's a kind of magic - alternative calligraphy.

I am delighted to be teaching gestural lettering for Sussex Scribes. More details on their website : https://sussexscribes1993.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/magic.pdf

“It’s a kind of magic!”

A workshop combining a morning working with bleach and ink followed by an afternoon experimenting with the folded pen.

We’ll start off with a squirt of bleach – what will it reveal? This will be followed by floating sumi ink on still water to create stunning marbled paper – each piece unique!

In the afternoon we will explore the wonderful mark making properties of the folded pen – a great tool that happily skips along the surface of textured paper and teams up well with suminagashi paper. Drawing on techniques learned from traditional scripts we will loosen up and break some rules! For those who have not made a cola pen we can also make one of these to use.
