The Advanced Spencerian Saga
continues the instruction of the Traditional Saga, but at a higher level. More involved writing techniques, fancier letterforms, elaborate flourishing patterns, learning how to design with penmanship and understanding the best use of decorative embellishing are presented in a manner involving student projects.

To gain the most benefit from this program, persons who wish to attend should already have at least a familiarity and/or beginner's degree of skill in any form of ornamental penmanship, whether it be Spencerian, Copperplate or decorative writing. A new, special set of practice exercises and projects will be featured this year, both in ornate letters and in decorative Off-Hand Flourishing.

We are extremely excited about the programs we have planned for this year, and hope that you will be able to join us for a visit back in time to America's Golden Age of Penmanship. Together we will study the techniques of the past, be inspired by the legendary Master Penmen, and carry on the tradition and skill from a bygone era. We can't wait to meet you in person.

Many people have already signed up, but there are spots still available. Any persons interested in attending either workshop are encouraged to send in their registration form and fee as soon as possible. If you have any problems downloading the pdf files, please call or email us.
