Learn how to write in this distinctive Renaissance style

Read the course outline.

The Renaissance saw the invention and development of Italic, a distinctive style of writing, which is still admired today. Join renowned scribe and illuminator Patricia Lovett MBE on our one-day masterclass, to learn the skills of writing Italic calligraphy and flourishes.

The Italic writing style is a versatile script with many applications and is used in a number of contemporary calligraphic artworks. During this course minuscules and majuscules (lower and upper case) letters will be demonstrated and learned and then flourishes (decorations added to strokes) will be covered to create an initial letter to take home.
