Join us for our June 27 Year End Social and Declutter Event

This year our June Social is a three pronged event.
#1 Black & White exhibition pieces are due and will be put on display for all to     admire.
#2 Visiting and Eating. Please bring something sweet or savoury for our buffet table. Plates, napkins and tea and coffee will be available. Join your fellow calligraphers and find out what they have planned for the summer.
#3 Declutter Event

Our first WCS de-clutter event! Our June 27th meeting is your chance to bring your  overstocked artists’ supplies to the tea – things you know you’re never going to play with again.
Lindsay and Jan will set up 3 groups of tables for your unloveds:
You can place them on a table for anything that is free and up-for-grabs.
Price them and hope that someone else is looking for that exact same thing (pocket the profit or donate to WCS).
Place them in the Trading Post category and negotiate an exchange with another member.
If you have items you want to donate without having to mind the store – Lindsay and Jan will take responsibility for your donations.
Nothing will find its way into the landfill if we can prevent it.

Join us for our April 25 Meeting.

Our first Calligraphy Circle will be held at our April 25/2018 meeting. Please join our CIRCLE of sharing, learning, helping and practicing calligraphy skills and techniques.
How Do You Do This?
Bring: A project of some sort to work on or not – your choice.
Questions: Be prepared to ask questions on how to do something that may not be working for you. Or ask someone who is working on a project “How do you do that?” “What tool are you using?”
Advice: Would you like some advice on how to fix your layout or choice of lettering,
ink, colour, etc?
Demo and Hands On Table
There will be some graphite and sumi ink supplies to try out. Do you have a new tool or supply you would like to share? Perhaps, you have something you bought ages ago and don’t really know how to use. Maybe somebody can give you some advice.

Join us for our March 28 meeting

CALLIGRA-WEAVING with Rose Wong

Join Rose as she leads us through the process to make a woven joint exhibition piece on our Black and White Theme. We’ll be writing out the alphabet on strips of black, white or grey paper, so you need to bring both black and white writing mediums (ink, gel pens, felts). After we are dne, the strips will be woven together to form an exhbition piece to which we all have contributed! The paper strips will be provided.Thanks to posts by a Montreal group on Instagram for the inspiration.
