This Friday, April 28 at 6:30p I will have a Pen and Ink class at Oil and Cotton. In this class we will cover warm-ups, how to hold and ink your pen (we will be working with a classroom set of nibs, pen holders, and ink for left and right handed students), and Foundational Hand lowercase and uppercase. We will also make accordion style booklets.
Beginning April 28 at 10a thru May 6 at 10a, I will be accepting registration for an online Italic Calligraphy course that will be offered through Vimeo. Calligraphy is a wonderful and accessible skill to have. Italic is simply elegant and legible, which makes it a great introduction to writing calligraphy. In this 3 part course, learn this versatile style and use it for handwriting projects like envelope addressing, invitations, and more.
This Saturday, April 29 11a-5p, Oil and Cotton will be participating in the Festival of Ideas. I will be the Intuitive Calligrapher (a stupendous idea by Shannon Driscoll) from 3 to 5p. It's an exhilarating experience were I look into the eyes of each visitor, I write the first word I feel, and the participant walks away with a personalized, handwritten word.
