Elaine had us captivated for two whole days.
On the first day we did some very creative printing. We used block printing paints and rolled the paint onto a smooth surface with rubber rollers, drew designs in the paint and laid the paper down. Some great designs were printed.
On the second day we were instructed on the historical progression of scripts that were Carolingian. Elaine spoke about the letterforms and gave us many examples. From there quotes were added to our designs from the first day using Carolingian script.
Our February workshop concentrated on basic letter forms, looking back to Classic Roman Lettering. It was conducted by Marg Peachey.
Some great pieces were produced:
