Workshop: Getting to grips with Rustics

A review of this workshop will be published in due course.

Workshop details & materials:

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.

Date | Saturday 29 February 2020
