Event description

Description

In this two hour workshop, you will begin to create your own individual take on traditional copperplate calligraphy. You will learn how to hold the split nib pen, form basic strokes, practice and connect letterforms, and execute an alphabet.

Bring your favorite poem or quotation to letter as practice, or create a one of a kind greeting card for a friend.

Appropriate for ages 14+. Class fee includes all materials (nib, nib holder and ink, paper, and worksheets).

This workshop will be held during Bg Craft Fest 2017, a shopping extravangaza of local handmade gift items and artisanal foods held at Bedford Gallery December 2–3. For more information and a list of this year's vendors, visit bedfordgallery.org/craftfest.

Leigh Wells has been creating images and lettering for advertising, design, publishing and editorial clients in the US and internationally for over twenty years. She splits time in her Berkeley studio between her visual arts practice, illustration and lettering commissions, and wedding/special event calligraphy.
