On Friday, September 24 at 7:30pm, calligrapher Anne Elser will be demonstrating how to create beautiful, hand-written scripts in a free virtual presentation sponsored by the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking.
Elser, a private calligraphy instructor who has been featured in books and magazines across the country, and for both private and corporate clients such as Tiffany&Co, Louis Vuitton, Pace Papers, Martha Stewart Weddings, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and Speedball, to name a few, will be demonstrating various calligraphy scripts. Starting with a portfolio tour she will take us through her stunning work and the demonstrate using the pointed pen for the principles of European Copperplate/English Round Hand, and Spencerian. Then she will demonstrate Monoline Writing using a glass dip pen and vibrate colors for letter lovers of all ages. And for a special treat, she will close this demonstration out with a script she created, the Open Shaded Script, recently celebrated in the Speedball Textbook 25th edition.
