Carl's vast knowledge of calligraphic history was fascinating as well as applicable to what we were doing. He showed us certain "master's" techniques by breaking down the strokes of each letter and then spending time with each student showing them how to make the marks.
The second half of the 4-day workshop was titled "Pen, Brush, Stiletto". Here we focused on brush lettering, as well as some pen, and also got into the exciting stuff like the cut paper and prismatic letter techniques you've already seen.
Can you tell from my excitement that EVERYONE should take this class if you have the chance?! You won't be disappointed!
