Spencerian I

I would like to share with you all that I have learned regarding Spencerian but that would take a longer class. This class is for the individual who would like to take a dip with their pen and learn the fundamentals of Spencerian.

We will learn about the history of Spencerian Script, hand and arm exercises, letter formation and exercises for you to practice

  • Oblique penholder
  • Straight penholder
  • Nikko G or Zebra G nibs

  • Pencil (Yoro pencil or Yoro pen is helpful in practicing letter forms before dipping ink. Also quite convenient when pen and ink is not possible for practice. These are optional if you have them bring them.  Otherwise a regular pencil is needed.  )

  • Small travel size tube of regular toothpaste (to clean your nibs)
