Pointed Endeavors: Introduction to Pointed Pen Calligraphy,
a workshop with Bill Kemp
Saturday, September 15, 9 am to 4 pm
New Mexico History Museum Classroom, 113 Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe, NM 87501 (enter on Washington Street)
This one-day workshop is the perfect introduction to calligraphy and the pointed pen, and also an extension of the experienced calligrapher’s repertoire. Participants will be introduced to ink and the oblique pen holder, using the pointed nib to create the thick and thin lines of “Engrosser’s Script.” These strokes will lead to the creation of compound curves and flourishes that are lots of fun and can enhance any style of hand lettering.
Bill will provide an instruction manual and paper for each participant. Participants will need to bring three items:
- One Nikko G nib (item #N113), $1.55
- One Peerless/Ziller Oblique Holder (Item #H48), $13.50
- One bottle of McCafferey’s Penman’s Ink (Item #I37), $7.75
All three of these supplies are available from John Neal Bookseller (johnnealbooks.com) and their item numbers are in parentheses after the item (above). If you would like to be part of a group order for these items, please send $25 extra with your check, also payable to BAG. This will save on shipping and convenience.
To register, send a check for $80, payable to BAG (or $105 total if you want to order the three items above), to Laura Wait, 108 Calle Francisca, Santa Fe, NM 87507, postmarked no earlier than July 1, 2018. For more information, contact Laura Wait at firstname.lastname@example.org.
