A “Taste” of Calligraphy

Sunday, March 3, 12:30–2:30 PM

The Rhode Island calligraphy studio, Scribe, is offering a two-and-a-half hour “tasting” workshop for those who want to learn the art of calligraphy. Currently in vogue for wedding and social stationery, calligraphy is also great for cards, books, and personalized gifts. Have an upcoming wedding or special event? This class is for you!
Jane Parillo, the owner of Scribe, will guide you through this visual art process. The class is designed so that students can use simple exercises to get experience using the broad-edged pen. In a brief introduction, Jane will explain various historical “hands” and the function of some lettering tools, as well as discuss the concepts of spacing and proportion. Students will then do some hands-on work with provided calligraphy pens. (Participants will be able to keep their pens.) Tea and scones will also be served.

$30 Member, $35 Non-member. $5 materials fee

  • August blooms (Aug 15, '14)
    I’m so glad it’s Garden Bloggers Bloom Day today because I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my return to the gardens after a week’s vacation. And looking back in my archives here I’m amazed to see that I haven’t participated in an August Garden Bloggers Bloom Day since 2008. (Where have I […]
