About this event

Please join us for the next Monthly Meeting with Edmonton Calligraphic Society,

Spencerian Splendor with Renita Land

Using a flexible nib and an oblique holder we will begin to learn the delicate Spencerian Script based on the teachings of Roger Platt Spencer. After practicing the basic strokes we will then use these strokes to make lower case letters.     

We will then practice a simple watercolour flower using the dot method to make either a bookmark or a gift tag.
