17th February 2018 Expanded Ribbon Italic with Ann Mason

This exciting workshop will be led by Ann Mason who says:

The aim of the workshop is to explore the decorative and design potential of manipulating cursive italic through a series of writing exercises and look at how expanding the words can give a different texture and rhythm and how this can be used in your designs. We will bind our writing trials into a simple A4 size book.
