Description

Saturday, May 5th from 9 am to 12 pm, let your creativity shine and jump in on this one-of-a-kind calligraphy workshop by Cari Ferraro. All you need to bring is a sketchpad, pencil and yourself! Cost is $25 per person. Tickets available on Eventbrite. Location coming soon!

Cari Ferraro is an artist, author, and scribe who has been tinkering with the literary and visual arts for over thirty-five years. Her interest in the roots of language led her to explore the symbols and patterns of Celtic art, which move across cultures and time. Her book art and writing can be seen at cariferraro.com and at her storefront, proseandletters.com. She lives along a creek in central California.

This three-hour class will introduce you to the basics of Celtic knot construction. Using only plain paper and a pencil we will draw our own grids and build simple knots on them. Though not calligraphy as we think of it, Celtic art in old Irish illuminated manuscripts speaks a pictorial language much older than alphabets, and drawing it can be a meditative practice."
