To inspire you, our Guild is now offering Back 2 Basics classes. Back 2 Basics is a continuing series of classes that will be offered six times this year. We’ll be covering Foundational (Feb.19), Uncial (April 23), Gothic (June 18), Italic (Aug. 20), Pointed Pen (Oct. 15) and Carolingian (Nov. 19). Classes will run from 9 a.m. to noon.
All Guild members are invited to participate. Registration is first-come, first-served, up to eight people per class. The cost is $5 per class. When you attend a class, paper, nib, nib holder & ink will be available for in-class use. Catalogs for ordering your own supplies will be available.
The first class on Saturday, Feb.19th is Back 2 Basics Intro to Calligraphy and Foundational taught by Sally Liverman and Cecelia Harris. The Intro to Calligraphy part will cover terminology, using a linex guide for lining your paper, choosing inks, a review of the ‘always list’, and set-up of your workspace. Then, Cecelia will instruct us in the Foundational hand.
Registration opens January 29th for the first class. To reserve your spot, e-mail Sally Liverman at springsS_9@msn. Cost is only $5 and you’ll need to pay your $5 per class at the Guild meeting on February 8th.
If you are one of the first eight, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail and the location of the class. Each class will meet at one of the teacher’s homes, giving you the opportunity to see their workspace and tools.
