Modern Calligraphy and Beyond.

Handwriting and calligraphy may seem like a lost art in the age of Twitter and texting, but the expressive touch of an artist’s hand can set your editorial styling and designs apart from the rest. Now that you have an understanding of calligraphy we will apply this into practical uses in a 2.5 hour workshop that explores ideas beyond the basics. After taking this class you will have a good understanding of the practical applications of calligraphy as used in editorial styling, stationery, and products. In addition to guidance from renowned calligrapher Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls, students will leave with a developed hand lettered design that will be produced into a rubber stamp. You will also learn the production process of turning your hand lettering image from paper and ink to fabric iron-on transfers for calico bags or tea towels. The possibilities are endless. You must have taken the first class or have previous experience in calligraphy.

Please bring the lettering kit supplied to you in the first class, or your own, pointed pen and ink, and paper. The rest of the items will be supplied in class.
