November workshop with Jilly
The meeting was at Sunderland University rather than our normal venue but two dozen scribes came to the workshop to explore how to modernise a traditional hand with Jilly Hazeldine. Using Insular Capitals as the model Jilly explained that we would need to keep some features to maintain the essential nature of the script. First to go were the archaic letterforms, the g, the r and the d, while Jilly suggested retaining the insular-style serifs in a lighter form would help preserve some essence of the script. The photographs show Jilly teaching and demonstrating during the workshop.
