topic: White Vine Designs a la Karla Hamilton

Karla has been an Inkspots member for a couple of years now, and we have seen some of her gorgeous work when she lived in Houston. She is a professional calligrapher with loads of experience and talent! She was scheduled to present this class right when the pandemic hit, so we are more than happy to finally have her teach us this time!

Karla learned White Vine from Mark Van Stone years ago, and she has adapted her own style to share with us. It's based on 15th-century designs.  She will show us how to make our own initial capital letter and embellish it with a simple White Vine design.


Please bring:

# 2 pencil and tiny eraser

Speedball 512 nib or similar. (I can supply some nibs for people who don’t have them.)

Pen staff

Small watercolor brush 0 or 00 size

Pigma Micron 005 and 02 or 03

Blue, Green and red gouache or watercolor if gouache not available.

Favorite gold ink

Jar for water and water

Tracing paper 

Paper towels

Small pallet

I will provide the  white paper we will be working on, alphabet for tracing capitals and handouts.

Here are some beautiful examples of Karla's White Vine work:
