Bill’s Space is aimed at anyone who has a love of letterform, especially those who are having trouble getting started. A Jack of All Trades. Always aspiring to become a master of lettering, I learned a basic italic hand at school, but it took some years to find a local evening class where I then found myself helping fellow students with their struggles. Shortly after this I taught at evening classes and led a local church group. For the last 6 years I have been privileged to lead a Calligraphy Workshop/Retreat at Belmont Abbey, Hereford. Any scribe will tell you people wrongly assume that if you can put letters on paper you will be able to paint them onto almost anything. Sadly, brushwork is a completely different technique to master. Here I was able to join a 1 year full-time course and then worked for some time as a signwriter, but never lost my love of penmanship. I hope I can help you on your journey.
