About the Artist:
Susan has been practising calligraphy for several years and particularly enjoys calligraphy in traditional scripts such as Copperplate, Spencerian and Italic. She seeks to constantly improve her art form and has taken workshops with several world-reknowned calligraphers. Her corporate clients include international luxury brand names.

About the Workshops:
Elegant Majuscules -
Copperplate Majuscules are perhaps one of the most elegant of upper case
scripts. In this workshop, we will study Copperplate majuscules in both their
traditional and flourished forms. We begin with the classic Copperplate
majuscule, mindful of the graceful ovals and compound curves that form the
basis of the letters. We then move on to the flourished forms of majuscules,
learning how to create elegantly flourished capital letters that blend
harmoniously with the written word, line and paragraph. The graceful majuscule can add a subtle elegance or a dash of flamboyance or flair to your writing, depending on how traditional or flourished you make it.

This class is suitable for those who are familiar with Copperplate miniscules or
the Copperplate script and wish to take it further. This class follows on from my Introduction to Copperplate Calligraphy workshop.

Gilded Garden Majuscules -
Learn how to gild with genuine gold in this full-day workshop with Susan (aka Oliveleafcalli on Instagram), as she takes you through how to successfully lay gilding medium and apply gold leaves to a smooth and shiny finish. We will start by designing a flourished majuscule, incorporating an elegant floral theme into the artwork. Each participant will design his/her own majuscule so a familiarity with majuscules would be desirable. Once the design is ready, you will be taught how to gild successfully under the watchful eye of Susan, who is one of the most experienced gilders in Singapore. A final touch of watercolour completes your Gilded Garden Majuscule.

*The flourished majuscule will be based upon Copperplate and Spencerian majuscules. A knowledge of these majuscules would be helpful in the workshop.
