INK ART EVENT - Lettering with Janine !

Written by Catherine on Tuesday 3 October 2017 in Events - Be the first to comment

Janine Tholen-Florijn came all the way from Rotterdam for the 22 participants in this special event. She brought with her a personal “guiding sheet” that she had painstakingly prepared, and everybody could ask questions about the techniques involved in creating special fonts. Lettering is mostly about making (or remaking) nice letters using a particular script. This is not conventional calligraphy, but rather a technique that involves writing slowly, carefully and, above all, beautifully. Sounds easy, I hear you say? Check out one of Janine’s tutorials and see for yourself!

Janine also had a range of fountain pens that quickly became the centre of attention. After all, the fountain pen is the ideal instrument for all kinds of beautiful writing. But not just any fountain pen, preferably one that fits snugly in your hand with a nib that suits your writing style. The workshop was also an opportunity to get to know some other brands - and TWSBI was the showstopper! :o)

The participants were given an opportunity to try out Robert Oster’s range of fountain pen inks, and everyone very much enjoyed using them.

The lettering workshop was a real success, and the unanimous verdict was that we should have another one. Thank you, Janine, for your contagious enthusiasm.

We would like to thank all the participants and students who took part in this workshop. It was a real pleasure working with you! We seem to speak the same language! We’re really looking forward to the next event.
