A SUMMARY

I will teach the basic formation of the italic alphabet, develop consistency, order, and clarity, showing how to present a page of writing beautifully, and showing how writing is not laborious but eminently practical. Later, I can teach more elaborate techniques for enhancing scripts for special purposes. During the session, I will speak about the origins of handwriting and we will explore the handwriting of famous individuals such as Queen Elizabeth I. I am happy to arrange workshops and courses for adults as well. If you would like to arrange a club or individual workshop, please contact me using the purple Contact Mentor button.

About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Michael

I have always been really enthusiastic about the quality of handwriting and I found italic handwriting to be the clearest, simplest and consistently beautiful style to use. I have taught it over many years in and out of school to children of all ages, and to adults.

Learning aims

To enhance your own letter formation

Strengths to develop

Learning to adopt a relaxed position when writing: how to sit well, how to hold a pen or pencil correctly, how not to develop stiffness, particularly in neck muscles.
