Red and White and Gouache with Wendy Cowley and Sherry Springall

Have you ever written with gouache? It is the preferred medium for many calligraphers as you can mix your own colours without having to buy yet another bottle of ink. We will be providing you with some red and white gouache to try it out. Why red and white? Because our exhibition theme for 2107 is True North Strong as we celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday! Gouache will be supplied.

Further details of the program are on the meeting page.

Join us for our November 23 meeting

Please join our society for our sweetest fundraiser of the year on
November 23, 2016 at 7:30.
(To be held after the AGM)
Please consider making/baking something for the sale. Think
“Christmas”. Cookies and bars, preserves, tarts, spiced nuts –
whatever gets your taste buds tingling.
Please bring your goodies wrapped and packaged in suitable sizes
ready for sale complete with price tags. (Pricing – not too high and
not too low – what you think is right.)
Please label your baking if it contains nuts for those who may have
allergies.
When you arrive at the meeting just place your baking on the sale
tables.

 Folllowing the Bake Sale, Wendy Cowley will be sharing some of the envelopes she has received through participation in envelope exchanges and sharing some tips on doing envelopes. We’ll conclude the evening by addressing an envelope. This program is perfect for beginners.

Socializing is the focus of our June meeting! Everyone is asked to bring a small plate of goodies to share so we can eat while we visit!  The library will be open from 7 to 7:30 so you can get some books to use over the summer months. Catherine Cooper will be demonstrating a watercolour technique. You’ll get the paper to do your own sheet over the summer. Yes, you still get homework over the summer. You need to bring your completed sheet back in September to be able to do the program acivity.

Join us for our May 25th Meeting

Join us for a special meeting. John Cogley, the owner of Daniel Smith Artist Materials in Seattle, will be demonstrating some of his products that are suitable for calligraphy.
