Saga Logo

The Spencerian Saga is open to persons of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, and designed for everyone who has an interest in learning or bettering their proficiency in vintage penmanship. Comprehensive instruction is given in Spencerian Script, Ornamental Penmanship, Signature Writing and Off-Hand Flourishing. Programs on the art of Engrossing are also presented during the week. In addition, a field trip is conducted to the Evergreen Cemetery where Platt Rogers Spencer and several members of his family are buried as well as the Spencerian Monument.  Each workshop participant has the opportunity to make a rubbing of Spencer’s magnificent memorial stone that features his name and a large quill that are carved boldly in beautiful penmanship. Furthermore, during the workshop participants will be able to study hundreds of original penmanship specimens that were written by the great master penmen from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
