Douglas Bevans began his formal art studies at San Francisco Art Institute, only 4 blocks away from his family’s typesetting shop where his interest in letters began. He became a freelance illustrator after further studies at Art Centre in Los Angeles. He now teaches at the Royal College of Art, and feels that drawing and lettering find their most agreeable combination in Calligraphy.

These two – 1 day workshops will explore the two basic lettering styles that are formal and informal, roman and italic. You will learn to write letters with a pen… upright ‘Roman’ letters on the first day of the workshop and slanted ‘Italic’ letters on the second day.

Suitable for all levels and all materials provided.
