Join us for our January 22, 2020 meeting

Join us as we celebrate our move to our new location. We’ll be making a quick book to celebrate! We’ll be using blank paper from one of our old archive albums, so we’ll be using the old in the new! All materials will be supplied.

In addition to the book, we will be talking about the calligaphy toolbox – basics and nice to have and maybe some “why did I need this”. There will be an opportunity for you to try out a few things as well.

 

Westcoast is on the MOVE!!!

Rose Wong will be presenting on “Bold & Blended – Chunky Capitals and Minuscules in Belgian Bister Inks with Amity Parks.
A 5-day class on learning a broad edged pen version of a chunky Roman alphabet.
This bold hand is a casual and contemporary look, lending itself to colour blending
with powdered watercolour Belgian Bister inks.”

Some other members will have samples of their work on display and be available to answer questions.

Calligraphy Card Circle

Our Circle will start with demonstrations usingthe document camera for all to see featuring a few different techniques to use with cards or other art pieces.

After the demos stations will be set up so you can choose to try a technique or two – depending on the time. There will also be another station that is self explanatory for  another card technique.

Our Calligraphy Circle is open for asking questions or for guidance from other members on things you need to know.

This should be a fun evening of TECHNIQUES for CARDS, CARDS, CARDS
