Upcoming Events

 

 September 9, 2018

Our regular meeting will start early at 12:30 and end at 2:3o

Our Education/After Meeting Program:  LETTER STYLE EXPLORATION.  You will go home today with a wonderful piece of art.  Scribes will provide special paper.  We will be writing names – YOUR name, all kinds of names!! – using any style, pen, ink, marker, dip pen, embellishment of your choice.  You do NOT have to be proficient in a calligraphy hand to do this.  NO ONE will know who has written the name.  This is for practice - encourage you to explore.  You will take home your paper with your name written by 30-40 different calligraphers, of all levels, many styles.  What a treasure !

 

Materials to bring:  1. Whatever style you wish to write, you might want to bring a copy of that exemplar/alphabet, book or just wing it! 2. Instrument to write – ink and dip pen, Pilot Parallel Pen, color pencils, brush markers, Gel Pen, Felt Tip pen, or maybe even a pencil – there is no questioning on this. 3. You might want to embellish on your lettering, or NOT. If so, gel pens, gold or silver, or shadow markers, always fun.

 

If you are unsure about this, come anyway.  It is NOT mandatory that you write, and you will still get to take home a piece of art with your name written on it in MANY different styles and designs.  It’s just a fun exercise to get us started for fall.

 

Please mail or bring to the meeting the SCRIBES SURVEY FOR AFTER MEETING EDUCATION / PROGRAMS AND MORE

 

FUTURE PROJECT – BENEFIT FOR YOU!:  When you come to this meeting, please bring a printed list of sources for calligraphic research that you might use or know of.  This can include Guilds or calligraphic teachers to follow on Facebook, Blogs that specialize in calligraphy or writing or relate to some, suppliers of calligraphic items (tools, publications, inks, etc).

 

We will collate and make a handout for member books to be given out at another meeting.  Please give as much info as you can, including complete name, link, website or Facebook name, etc.  This will help us identify how to list on forms for members.  If you can’t make this meeting, mail it to ScribeLinda@gmail.com
