Description
While some believe it is better to pen a scroll text in the actual language, this is not always possible. Besides most recipients like being able to read their scrolls. A well done faux (imitation) hand will help keep with the overall effect of your foreign scroll. This class will be an open format for discussion of fonts and how to make one of your own. Handouts will be provided covering Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew & Cyrillic (Russian) and Greek.
