Equipment & materials list
A world of inspiration and play is waiting for you through drawn letter forms. This class offers a fresh look at drawing and decorating beautifully ornate letters.
Taking visual clues from Art Nouveau typography, Toile Du Jouy fabric, decorative florals, and the delicate colours of a Parisian inspired palette, we will create these whimsical letterforms. The Art Nouveau period gives us slender, curvaceous forms that are richly inspired by nature.
Using pencil, eraser and a pen etching technique as our simple tools, we will explore the possibilities of these wonderful letters. With time and practice, they can become as simple or as complex as you like.
You will never see letters in quite the same way as we explore this class! Open to all skill levels. Bring a sense of play and curiosity to this class.
Specific skills you will learn at the workshop
- How to design and draw your own unique letters in pencil
- Pen etching techniques
- How to gild with 23K gold leaf
All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Heather will offer feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
We suggest that you do not buy any specialist materials more than one week in advance as, occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to low enrolment.
*The tutor feedback section of our follow up session is not recorded. This is to ensure that you have an opportunity to share your work without feeling self-conscious about being recorded. Please join us live for this session if you can – even if you chose the ‘recording only’ option above. Rest assured that any additional tutor demonstrations will be recorded and shared.
