Calligraphy Card Circle

with Susan King, Sherry Springall and Wendy Cowley

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

After the demo’s 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 making another card.

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 CARDS, CARDS, CARDS

Bubbly and Brie @ Jericho Hill Centre, West Art Room

Bubbly and Brie: Exhibition Preview and Society Retospective

While working on the Journal, our archives revealed that the first ever calligraphy
meeting was a “wine and cheese” party.
To celebrate our Retrospective Journal, to be issued  at the June meeting,
and toast our Through Rose-coloured Glasses Exhibition, we would like to repeat
the theme of the inaugural meeting. We may even have some original journals on display.
WCS will supply the non-alcoholic bubbly and asks members to bring charcuterie style nibbles to share – keeping in mind the ”wine and cheese” theme.

 

Don’t forget chocolate (or whatever sweets you fancy), because there can never
be too much cheese or chocolate!
