16 | 09 Gwyneth Hibbett – Pencil Gothic

Saturday 16th September 2023, Felindre Village Hall, 10am – 4pm.

This workshop takes a familiar tool – the pencil – to practice and create gothic letter shapes and use them in combination with a variety of different artistic effects.

The versatility of pencils and their range of “hardnesses” give the calligrapher scope for shading and many different textures, which can take your lettering in
different directions.

Soft graphite greys give a subtlety that sometimes the harsh black ink of ‘blackletter’ doesn’t, and the ease of adding some pencil embellishment can re-ignite a love of Gothic.
