Event description

Description

This class meets on Sunday, June 3, 2016 -- from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This workshop is all about envelopes as art! It’s also designed for those who wish to learn the proper way to address envelopes using their existing calligraphy skills, and add a WOW factor through additional flourishing and ornamentation, while still working within USPS (postal service) guidelines. From traditional to trendy to funky and fun, you will be guided through the process of creating an envelope composition that pops!

You will learn the following:

• Envelope layout and composition
• Setting up guideline templates for all sizes
• Centering techniques
• Writing on an angle/curve
• Determining proper scale for writing in various sizes
• Dealing with dark and heavily lined papers
• Decorating and Ornament
• Integrating flourishing with lettering
• Choosing the right nib/ink for the job
• Postal Rules & Regulations for mailing
• Phantom Liner Demonstration

This workshop includes valuable tips for creating unique designs using your own style! Kathy will demonstrate the Phantom Liner, along with her “Spontaneous Writing” technique… no guidelines used! We will also cover the basic rules of etiquette for both formal and informal affairs as it applies to addressing.

Please note: This is not a letterforms class. A basic knowledge of calligraphy is necessary to fully benefit from this workshop.
