Date: Saturday February 3, 2018
Time: 10am - 1pm

$40 Paper & Handouts Included

Calligraphy is the fine art of decorative letter writing. It is an art that anyone can learn. Come and explore this beautiful skill under the guidance of our instructor Margaret Van Diest.

Learn how to hold and use the pens, measure for the proper letter size and take the mystery out of this creative skill.

The instructor will provide supplies to use during this hands-on workshop, and handouts to take home.

In this workshop, we will learn to create our own “fun and funky” letters using a felt marker and other tools that will be provided. Changing pen angles and working on the edge of our nib will produce lots of interesting calligraphic letters. Adding colour will enhance your new alphabet(s) and bring new ideas for all.

This is a fun, no-stress class. Beginners and experienced calligraphers are welcome.

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.
