About the Course

Italic is a timeless and beautiful script whose origin is accredited to Niccolo Niccoli (1364-1437). Use it either as a formal hand for presentation work, or a day to day cursive script for jotting down miscellaneous thoughts.

This course will teach you how to construct the letters, how to practice the letter forms and develop a style of your own. Whether you wish to use a dip pen or fountain pen, you can discover a new love for the hand written word. Use your own pens and ink, or purchase on the day from tutor.

Drawing boards and paper provided for use during the day.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Paper and drawing boards. Selection of teas, filter coffee and scrummy biscuits.
