Workshop: Getting to grips with Rustics
Enjoy learning this most elegant of Roman Classical hands and discover that it is not as mysterious as you might have thought. This is a hand that can be adapted and modernised (if you wish) and is good for developing calligraphic skills.
ALSO: We will use colour and some basic gilding to achieve some stunning results.
