Date: Saturday October 14, 2017
Time: 10am - 1pm

$40 Paper & Handouts Included

In this three hour workshop we will learn to scribble the Blackletter (or Gothic) alphabet and will make a seasonal greeting card.

Handouts and paper for the card are provided. 

We will be using a felt marker for the class but you will also learn about different tools that are “sharper” for the fine lines of letters.

This workshop is for beginners as well as calligraphers with some experience.

Calligraphy is the fine art of decorative letter writing. It is an art that anyone can learn.

Sampler Classes are designed for anyone wanting to try out different mediums before investing in workshops and supplies.

We begin with a brief demo and discussion of various techniques. Participants will experiment and create their own masterpiece. If you want to try something new or have never painted before, or even if you already have a favorite medium, sampler classes are a great way to expand your artistic horizons.
