Its All Go for August

Dear Members and Followers,

Calligraphy is Go at Calligraphy Southscribes in August.

Yours truly is running the calliarts and full day workshop so I hope to see you at the hall.

Calliarts - As Easy as 1,2,3 - Numbers - 11 August - 1pm to 4pm - Tutor - Cathy Sayer
(Sylvania Community Hall, Canberra Rd, Sylvania - $10 cost)

Often considered to be the poor cousins of the alphabet, calligraphic numbers are an important part of the calligraphy process. Numbers are functional and beautiful. People use them every day, yet when calligraphic hands are studied, the numerals are often covered quickly. This afternoon we will look at different numerals and have fun making them as great as the alphabet!

Usual calligraphy gear (bleedproof paper, ruler, pencil, tracing paper, ink or gouache).
Plus, fine black biro; and a variety of black fine liner pens (up to and including 0.05)
Pointed nib and Speedball B nib any size

Workshop - Uncial - 18 August - 10am to 4pm - Tutor - Cathy Sayer

(Sylvania Community Hall, Canberra Rd, Sylvania - $45 members, $55 non-members) 

In this workshop we will revisit Uncial which is often associated with the Book of Kells. This calligraphic hand is a good introduction to calligraphy for beginners but for the more experienced, we can either work to perfecting your Uncial or visit some alternatives.

Usual calligraphy gear (see above).

plus, colour gouache, fine brushes for painting, painting gear (palate, jars, etc.)

Watercolour pencils
