I’m always excited to share my love of letters with new people! For the past year, the Paper Source at North Park Center has been giving me that opportunity on selected Saturdays. In my workshops, I introduce the basics of lettering including how to make different letter forms and stroke making. We use chiseled and brush markers to make it easier for beginners to get the feel of the letters before they attempt to work with pen and ink.
Once everyone gets a general feel of the how-to’s of lettering, we experiment with gel and glue pens, lettering on dark paper, as well as using a Versa brand brush marker with embossing powder and heat tool to create note cards that pop!
This class is set up for beginners. So whether you want to make place cards and gift tags for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, have envelopes you’d like to attempt to address or have always wanted to become a professional calligrapher, this is a good starting point.
The next classes for 2010 are Saturday, October 2 and Saturday, December 4. The class is from 1-4 pm. To sign up, call the Paper Source at 214-696-4400.
Hope you can join me!
