Ondine - June 16 - Calligraphy Workshop

Dear Members and Followers,

Come along to our June calligraphy workshop and enjoy the hand of Ondine. We are one of the few calligraphy societies that teach this script so don't miss out. Our tutor will be Gloria Scott.

"This is a very attractive letterform, with many applications, particularly
useful  as it does not have long ascender or descender strokes,
great for cards, envelopes, etc.   Beginners welcome as it is very
achievable in a one day workshop."

  • Calligraphy gear as usual
  • plus coloured pencils
  • graphite pencil 2B or 2H
  • two or three pieces of light cardoffcuts of A4, strips etc, don’t go to any expense over this
  • chisel edge pens, eg. speedball 3 or 2, Brause, Mitchell equivalent.
  • ink or gouache

Calliarts - Monograms - Saturday 12 May 2018

Dear Members and Followers,

Feeling creative? Then channel your calligraphic talents in another direction and create some monograms, for you, the family and friends.

A monogram is a combination of two or more letters, in which one letter forms part of another and cannot be separated from the whole image. Monograms are used for ornamentation as a mark of ownership by a private person, Company or as a Trade Mark. A monogram is a very useful for identifying your hand made articles such as book plates, bookmarks, cards etc. The Calliart workshop will cover how to incorporate Initials into a pleasing design using different techniques giving a clear image that can be reduced to small scale without losing clarity.
