Martin Jackson will be talking about how he is able to join his two passions, Butterflies and Calligraphy, to create beautiful art. This is a rare opportunity to hear Martin and see his work.
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.
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.
