At our March meeting we will be making a gate fold book in Red and White of course in honour of Canada’s 150th Birthday. All materials will be supplied. More details on the Meetings page!
Letters and Patterns with Laura Eriksson. Using Laurie Doctor’s Fragmented Alphabet, Laura will gide us in writing in code.
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.

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.
Join us as Catherine Cooper shares her technique of using layerd watercolour papers and lettering to add framing, depth, texture and/or colour to a composition. You need to bring a sheet of painted watercolour paper. We will be cutting the paper into small pieces so it doesn’t have to be a picture just colour on the paper.
