In this workshop, you will be learning the French Roundhand, a style of lettering with a lovely flow that is easy to learn. This style of lettering is easy and quick to execute and can be decorated in a number of ways. You will be surprised at how many uses you can find for this style. 

We will start with the basics strokes, spacing and proportion of the miniscule (small) letters and continue with an introduction to the majuscule (capital) letters. We will also talk about the families of letters as well as letter and word spacing. At the end of the workshop you will know how to write in this beautiful style and will be able to use it to decorate your letters and cards.

*All materials, handouts and tools will be provided
