    Calligraphy Meeting & Mini-workshop

    1:00 pmWaldemere Fire Station

    Laura Stevenson – Lost in Space

    Description:

    Calligraphy involves more than making marks on paper.  Many skills and considerations are involved in creating these marks to result in calligraphic pieces that convey the desired message.  This workshop will address one of these skills that challenges many calligraphers - spacing.  This summer at Seattletters, Ewan Clayton taught a workshop entitled “Calligraphy of the Heart: Part 2.”  He worked through a set of exercises in this workshop to help with understanding spacing and learning to relate marks to spacing.  Ewan has graciously given me permission to share this information with our Guild!
