Course Progress - All Feedback Welcomed!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I started doing Beginners' Calligraphy at Morley College (in London) in Autumn 2014, and wanted to share some of the results here for feedback / encouragement / advice / anything really!


I'm into the 2nd term, each term has one 2 1/2 hour session a week, for 10 weeks. We look at 3-ish hands per term, as well as touching on things like blind embossing, gilding, colour theory etc.


So it's a bit of a whistle stop tour of calligraphy, but it's giving me the desire to go deeper, and helped me improve a surprising amount. I was getting really frustrated practising alone, from books, as I was having the same problems over & over, but some guidance from a tutor in person has helped me address my difficulties. I need a lot more practice, but the photos below show pretty much where I'm at with Foundation Hand, Blackletter, Uncials, and Versals.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
