Funcial Workshop

The Funcial workshop will be a simple demonstration of a few ways to modify the Uncial alphabet and give it a modern twist. Then we will create a package envelope using our paste paper from last month’s workshop.

Please bring the following supplies:

  • 1 piece of paste paper on Arches text wove at least 12”x18” or a decorative paper of the same size
  • 1 piece of Arches text wove or similar (plain) paper at least 14’x14”
  • scissors or x-acto knife
  • bone folder
  • cutting mat
  • compass
  • HB pencil
  • ruler
  • glue stick
  • marker layout paper for practice
  • 3.8 Pilot parallel pen with black ink
  • Zig 3.5 calligraphy waterbased markers (colors). These are just to play around with a few fun techniques. You will need two colors…yellow, orange, red, pink, light green or light blue. I’ll share if you don’t have any.
  • Gold or silver gel pen

See you all on November 5th!
