Ruling Pen Workshop with Rachel Yallop

21 April 2018 • 9:00 am22 April 2018 • 4:30 pm

Ruling Pen Techniques: Cola, Folded, and Pointed Ruling Pens

  • Inscription: Sold out!

The ruling pen is a very versatile tool, not least because it comes in more than one form: the folded, the pointed and the Cola pen. Even then, there are different shapes within these groups which affect the marks made.

In this class we will:

  • Look at the various tools and make a Cola pen
  • The ruling pen, of whichever sort makes a unique line. Pen manipulation and the position in the hand, forms a large part of this. This will be demonstrated and students will then experiment themselves .
  • Looking at the marks made, how to achieve  the splatter effect and instruction on how to enhance lines through touch-up
  • Practicing both formal and informal letter shapes – the ultimate contrast
  • Working on finished pieces: large multi-lined , textural letter, built up capitols, word design, or a combination of them all.
