The Lettering of David Jones - Janet Smith

Port Sunlight:                    Saturday 14th July 2018
Lower Withington:             Sunday 15th July 2018

David Jones was a 20th Century British artist (and writer and poet). Among his works are pieces of lettering which he called “painted inscriptions”. These will be our starting point as we create our own personal versions of lively capital letters. The class will be suitable for all, but it will be helpful to have
had some experience of writing with edged pens.


Usual tool kit (see list p25), plus:
•Smaller nibs (such as Mitchell 4 or 5, Brause 1 or 0.5)
•Practice paper including one sheet of layout or tracing paper
•A few small pieces of good paper - coloured and textured papers will work nicely
•Some short quotes to write out.
